Amazon Alexa whilst controlling your Smart Home has some really funny features, for example, did you know you can play games on your Alexa?
Alexa controls your Smart Home, reminds you of your appointments, turns off the lights, wakes you up and even lets you ask it jokes and play games, but the question still remains, are there any good games on Alexa?
The Amazon Alexa features tons of interactive games that are fun to play and have an enjoyable experience with your family and friends.
It includes many of our favorite games from Tic Tac Toe to Escape the Room that keep you engaged for hours. It offers games for adventure seekers and sport lovers as well.
Let’s check out the list below about games to play with Alexa and find out whichalexa games are the best for youthat you can play on your Amazon Echo device.
RuneScape Quests – One Piercing Note
This is one I’ve played a few times as an avid ‘scaper (I’ve been playing for over 15 years on and off). This is a fantastic voice controlled murder mystery story driven game which tackles finding clues, questioning characters and tackling demons.
I really like the voice acting, Jagex really went all out with this skill, it’s really a shame this is the only quest they have as I’d love to hear more.
- Start new game: ‘Start’ or ‘New game’
- Save your current progress: ‘End’
- Play a saved game: ‘Resume game’

Skyrim Very Special Edition
Another fantastic story driven title but not as good as the Runescape quest in my opinion, this game has no voice acting and is all done through Alexa narrating which can really break the immersion.
It’s a fun little RPG but it does get very repetive, this is definitely one to pick up and put down over time.
Escape the Room
We all loved playing escape the room when we were growing up, you may be excited to find out that now you can play escape the room virtually.
In the game, you find yourself trapped inside a room that you must escape. You havetheoption to choose your location and your difficulty level, like the jail cell (easy), office (medium) or car (hard).
To make your way out of the room, you have to find items and solve puzzles like connecting wires in a certain order. You can also compete with your family and friends and enjoy.
To launch the game, all you have to do is “Alexa, Escape the Room”
Tic Tac Toe
Playing Tic Tac Toe can get a little tricky as it would require some imagination as you will be playing with your voice instead of writing down on a piece of paper.
The game requires your full attention and for you to be quick in calculating your movestowin. You can tell Alexa where you want to place your mark;it’s one of the best and interesting games on alexa that can be played against a virtual opponent.
Whether you call it King’s or King’s cup, Alexa drinking games are popular. In this game the player takes a sip of the drink and dispenses the drink when a card is drawn.
The cards have some rules written on them that are to be followed by the player when a card is drawn. But in this virtual game, Alexa plays the role of being the play cards.
You simply ask Alexa “who drinks?” to which Alexa may respond “drink right” that would mean the player sitting nexttothe person who asked will have to take a sip from the drink and then Alexa may assign an action to them to perform.
