Finally I transferred my second account to google play:
1. The app was the installed via amazon app not on an amazon device
2. Created a fake second google / user account on the android tablet
3. Created a fake facebook account
4. Connected the original amazon account with the new fake FB account ( had to play the whole tutorial before)
5. Switched again to the new google account and connected the former amazon account, now connected with FB, with the new fake google fake profile
6. Done ... Works perfect
7. Should work as well with an SWC account on a Fire Tablet, BUT an android device is needed!!!
8. Those who have only Amazon devices should use an android device to save the account this way (new device or ask a friend or family member for 2. profile on an android device)
9. I have an amazon Fire HD X too, fully rooted and with google play store running, but atm you will have no access to the google version of SWC (think there is kinda server conclusion between amazon and google as long as the game is playable via amazon) - so I think when the amazon support ends finally, then it will be possible to play SWC via google on an amazon device

My little is save! I'm happy! Try it!

Sorry for my bad english, it's Christmas (ok few hours to go ) and I am drunk :-)

SithVicious - Thank for posting. :)

I highlighted your "instructions" to indicate that an Android Game Device is still needed and those whom have Amazon Game Devices will need to save their game.

It is my hope we can find a solution for Amazon Game Devices before time runs out.

Thanks SithVicious!,

Thanks for sharing that info. All of our squad members that are using the Fire HD can't get past the splash page issue. I will cross my fingers, but because there's money involved, I suspect this issue won't go away post transition. It's interesting that Clash of Clans worked fine through Google play with the proper apk files, even on a Fire HD, but swc will not. Of course, now CoC is available on the Fire HD. A year or so late.

Yes, lots of us Amazon users still have our fingers crossed that the standard Android /Google version will ultimately work in some way on our Amazon Fires after 7th Jan.
As previously mentioned, I think it is a difference in company ethos that is seeing the Amazon version being withdrawn, not technical. ie:
- Zynga prefer to directly sell in game purchases .
- Amazon specifically forbids in game purchases unless via Amazon.

We will see what happens

I can find plenty of Zynga games on the amazon app store. Something else must be going on.

Has anyone gotten this to work? My brother picked up an Android tablet and there's no prompt to load the old base. I am guessing the Amazon version is not being recognized. Even with the suggested method above.

If you have bought an android tablet, you need to move the game over the simple way. On the Amazon Fire, back up the game to facebook. Then on the android tablet, download the SWC app, play through until you pick a faction (use a different call sign than your Fire to better tell the games apart). Then synch the android to that same facebook account. It will ask which game to keep - the old facebook game already there (your Fire account with your trusty ol' call sign) or the one you just did on the android. YOU NEED TO PICK THE FIRE ONE. There are old threads about moving things to facebook and then moving the game to different devices. I'd review one of those. I need to do all of this as well to move my mini-base over from Fire but can't use my facebook account (as that is a different base and I don't want to overwrite it) so I'll be borrowing a facebook account from a family member to move it up and over to a post-Xmas ipad. Wishing us all luck in the import and move overs...
