Title: Random number between X and Y
Post by: jonjanisch on June 11, 2015, 05:39:41 pm
You can say "Alexa, pick a number between 3 and 7".

I'm having some people over for a game night and thought it would be neat for Alexa to determine who starts first ;)

Also good for Game nights
Alexa can roll a die for you, just say "Alexa, roll a die" or "Alexa, roll 2 dice"

She will give you a number between 1-6

If you game involves dice with more side than just 6 all you have to do is specify how man side.
For instance

"Alexa, roll a 4-sided die"
"Alexa, roll an 8-sided die"
"Alexa, roll a 10-sided die"
"Alexa, roll a 12-sided die"
"Alexa, roll a 20-sided die"
"Alexa, roll a 100-sided die"

~You see the trend here.~

You can also roll multiple of the same type of dice
ex: "Alexa, roll 3 4-sided dice"

But right now you can't ask for multiple different dice at the same time (like if you wanted to roll 1d8 and 1d6)

Have fun, Game on!
