Linkee and Friends Go Live on Alexa Just in Time for Christmas


- Advertisement -

Linkee, the ultimate shout-out-the answer guessing game, is now available to play as a voice game on Alexa, along with three other fun and shouty board games. Linkee, What Came First and Obama Llama (plus its Christmas sister game Santa Banter), have all been let ‘out of the box’ and can now be played as voice activated games or ‘skills’ on Alexa devices. 

The games are all simple to play, interactive, hands-free and easy to get going, with Alexa talking you through the rules. They can be played alone or offer great fun for families and friends to see who can shout out the correct answer first. Have a go at guessing some rhymes to pass the time whilst doing the washing up, play a quick game of Linkee round the table after dinner or guess What Came First whilst cooking .   

They’re free to play with the option to pay for more content or even buy the full boardgame – without leaving the skill. Whether you’re quick at spotting the links between things, enjoy silly rhymes or have good general knowledge about dates, there’s a new voice game to enjoy.  

Linkee – To play just say “Alexa, open Linkee.”

The super-simple, shout-out-the-link trivia game. Alexa gives you four questions (plus a clue if you need it) and have to work out what links the four answers. If the answers were John, Paul, George and Ringo, the link would be… The Beatles. Shout “Linkee!” after any question to guess the link and gain points that will see you rise up the national leader board. There’s a free ‘Linkee of the Day’ every day or you can join the Linkee Fan Club and play unlimited Linkees and really climb the leaderboard. 

What Came First – To have a go, simply say “Alexa, open What Came First!”

Donald Trump or Fake Tan…? What Came First is a super-simple trivia game where Alexa gives you two things and you have to say which of them are the oldest. Get it right and you get a shot at guessing the year it came into the world for extra kudos. Play for free up to 20 times with the option to unlock extra question packs. 

Donald Trump came first! The ‘Orange One’ was born in 1946 while fake tan as a product was launched in the late 50s under the name ‘Man Tan’. 

Obama Llama – To get started say “Alexa, open Obama Llama!” 

The ridiculous rhyming game with the weird name that was invented by radio DJ and broadcaster Matt Edmondson. Alexa will give you a silly celebrity riddle and you have to shout out the rhyming answer.  For example ‘Mission Impossible star has got bleeding under his skin.’ Solve 20 rhyming riddles for free with as many guesses as you like. If you love the game you can purchase the full board game from Amazon using just your voice. 

The answer is ‘Tom Cruise has a bruise!’  

Santa Banter – Give it a go by saying “Alexa, open Santa Banter”

Another of Matt Edmondson’s games, Santa Banter contains ridiculous rhymes just like Obama Llama, but they’re all Christmas themed. For example “Will Ferrell’s character in Elf is covered head to toe in dirt.” Play 10 questions for free then choose to unlock the Santa Banter Question Stocking to get 50 extra questions.   The answer is ‘Buddy is muddy!’
