First Kindle "active content" games appear

Noticed this morning Amazon quietly dropped the first bits of "active content" in the Kindle Store. They're a pair of word games developed by Amazon, Every Word and Shuffled Row. Both free, run on all 2nd-gen Kindles with current FW.

Be forewarned... Amazon has made it *IMPOSSIBLE* to deliver these games to more than *ONE* Kindle registered to your account!!! I downloaded a copy - they are free, by the way - and showed it to my mom. When she requested that I get it on *HER* K2, Amazon baulked and informed me to go to 'Manage My Kindle' to have it delivered. *THERE* it specifically stated I couldn't schedule it for delivery!

Wat to go AMAZON!!!!

Interesting - I can't see any Kindle-specific data that restricts the app to just one Kindle. I downloaded the azw2 files to my PC and copied the files over to my Documents folder.

I don't have a second Kindle, but I'd be curious if you could just copy the azw2 file to your second Kindle and see if that works.

I tried copying the game files I downloaded over to my co-worker's DX, and it came up with a "Not Authorized" error. The file type is azw2, but all of the 'usual' programs don't 'liberate' the game. I'm sure some enterprising individuals are already hard at work on this!

For now, it really does seem like one copy of each game for each account.

Check "Archived Items" with the wireless turned on for the Kindles registered on your account. The games should show up and can be downloaded directly to the Kindle that way.
