Baen Books has put out a free online game that lets players earn free ebooks. It’s called Planet Baen (at PlanetBaen.com). It’s a thinker’s game, where you’re the leader of a group of space colonists building a settlement on a distant planet. You get to set your own politics, and your choice of politics affects how the game works. If you play 15 minutes a day for a week or so, you’ll earn a free ebook of your choice from the large collection of books at http://www.baenebooks.com, including tons of titles from Tor and Del Rey and Nightshade Books, as well as Baen’s huge catalog, and books from a surprisingly wide spectrum of science fiction and fantasy authors, like Catherine Asaro, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Lois McMaster Bujold, Jaqueline Carey, P.N. Elrod, Sharon Lee, David Weber, and Phil and Kaja Foglio.

Earn free ebooks just by playing a game? Sounds good to me! Be sure to check it out…
