No, I'd pirate them off my mates. What have Slitherine ever done for us?

No, I'm pretty hard up for money right now. I'd probably borrow a mates download and pay for a real copy later.

I picked maybe, as it would depend on the cast of the app/ebook. If it is already the cost of a print copy and then I still have to pay for printing and materials? No, I will not.

Well, I guess I assumed everyone would think 'at reasonable cost'. I ticked yes, but I wouldn't hold myself to that if the rules cost $1,000,000:00.

Well, the actual cost of FoGA V2.0 is actually a lot less than $1,000,000.00.
It might be around $454: iPad3 $399 + FoGA for iPad $25.00=$454

For UK players, its worse: iPad3 GBP399+FoGA for iPad GBP25=GBP424.

Atatnet, don't be so pessimistic.

EVERYONE has an iPad... didn't you get that memo? Everyone HAS to have an iPad for the announcement to have made sense.

I picked maybe, for me the best option is an e-book pdf with searchable index and print option, obviously at a reasonable cost !!

Phil

Time for me to assume the mantle of dave_r for a moment.

To be precice (some would say pedantic) JD has not 'announced a paper version'. What he wrote is

'
However, we have also listened to what you have said and we are now investigating as quickly as we can a method of providing access to a “paper” version as well. We are committed to finding a solution to this and there are various alternatives that we are looking into to assess cost and time scales.
'

That is very likely to lead to the announcement of a paper version but it most certainly is NOT announcement of a paper version. Don't doubt JD's, word just don't want to get people too excited (and I know how the very thought of Phil gets some people excited...)

Guys any discussion of piracy in any forum has never been and never will be tolerated on the forum. I understand why the thread was created but this type of discussion is not permitted. Piracy is criminal offence and any discussion of it or encouragement of it will lead to an immediate and permanent ban of those involved.

This is a one time warning.
