Due to the popularity of this post with over 200 views, I thought I would share it again and include a new favourite game of mine. Please keep reading to find out more:
I have had my Amazon Alexa for 21 months now and it has been a tremendous lifeline for me. Plus very entertaining!
Here are my five recommended game skills for you to enjoy on this device:
1. Word Chain
In this game, multiple players take it in turns saying words, where every next word should begin with the last letter of the previous word. For example, “Rabbit – Toad – Dog – Gorilla”. You can choose from four categories; ‘Countries, Capitals, Animals & Fruit and Vegetables’. You can also play in cooperative or competitive mode. You can either play with just Alexa or with other people. If there are no more words beginning with a certain letter, you will be given the option to skip to a different letter and continue the chain or finish the game.
This is basically a guessing game where you think of a person, real or fictional, and have Alexa ask you yes or no question to find out who you’re thinking about. The only down side to this game is they make some characters defined as “inappropriate for children” which is quite ridiculous.
3. Harry Potter Letters
This game is for all Harry Potter gurus. The way the game works is Alexa will give you a letter and you have to name as many Harry Potter related words as possible beginning with that letter. My highest score is 30 with the letter P! There are also other letter skills including Name Letters, Animal Letters & The Simpsons letters.
(NB: There are many other Harry Potter related game skills including Quiz on Harry Potter, Harry Potter House Quiz & Harry Potter: Would You Rather?)
4. The Magic Door
The Magic Door is an interactive adventure game where you explore different stories in the garden, sea, forest & castle and help the wizard turn back time. Alexa will give you choices on tasks & directions and you’ll solve riddles, collect items and help magical creatures. I spent the first 6 days of having my Echo Dot completing this skill. To find out more on this skill and get hints and tips on how to complete it, visit The Magic Door on Facebook.
5. Harry Potter Quiz
This is my favourite new game and I discovered this game on my weekly Alexa e-newsletter a couple of months ago. It is an official game from Pottermore publishing and Audible.
In this game you choose which house you want to be in then get given three questions each day. For each question, Alexa will play a clip from the Harry Potter audiobooks read by Stephen Fry, then will give you a question based on that clip. For example “what is this spell?“, “which character is being described?” or “what place is being described?”
There are two levels to this game which you can choose from. O.W.Ls have multiple choice answers and N.E.W .Ts just give you the question and you have to say the answer. If you get all three questions right you unlock a bonus question for additional points
