Inspiration

Werewolf is an amazing game.Combine it with Alexa's voice command and a little (huge actually) amount of Python in the backend and you get countless hours of fun.

What it does

Calls into Alexa's API in order to simulate the host of a werewolf game.

How we built it

The backend is fully supported by AWS,while Alexa makes calls to our Flask server to get the whole story of the werewolf.Then,it parses the info into our front end written in html,css and js in order to provide mobile users with a GUI
