Amazon Alexa Plays Board Games

This is going to be fun. Alexa is going to be capable of playing board games with you.

The first one is a geography game, called “When In Rome,” from  Sensible Objects.

It’s going to be very “futuristic” playing with a robot. Alexa will teach us the rules, keep track of the score, and guide us through the game.

Everyone sits around a world map. Each player has a “home city” where he or she starts. As you enter each new city, Alexa asks you questions about the area: food, people, topography, weather, customs, etc.

The person with the highest points wins. The game will be available this summer at $29.95. Stay tuned for many more voice-augmented tabletop games.

The future is now.
