I was really curious about how the Amazon Echo worked but buying one seemed a bit risky since I was a bit skeptical whether I would find a good use for it (wasn't too far off...). Every once in a while, Amazon releases a challenge where, if you build an Alexa Skill, they will send you a free Echo; so that was my chance.This is an Amazon Alexa Skills which consists on a trivia game where the player gets asked 5 questions from the Harry Potter books or movies alike. The game keeps track of your score and will give you a magic rank based on how you did.
The Skill is released on the Alexa Store. You can try it out if you install Trivia for Muggles on your own Alexa device. Alternatively you can play on the simulator. Just click the button below and Amazon's Simulator environment will pop up in a new window. To activate, press the center button and hold while you say "Alexa, open Trivia for Muggles". I recommend reviewing first because there are some pretty tough questions in the game.
