As a kid having pizza was always a blast, and playing any game that had pizza as an objective made me extra motivated to accomplish it. With the Kids challenge it looked like a perfect opportunity to learn the Alexa SDK and create a fun pizza themed game with it.

Learning to use the Alexa SDK, and mapping the timing of certain phrases and keeping game state.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Using Lambda for a complete serverless approach for a game.
