When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Random number between X and Y

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!

That is so awesome!
