I felt inspired by pizza skill. already had an idea in the past of making a roulette game. but Alexa conversation made it easy to ask for arguments in any order and with confirming API to fix mistakes.
What it does
You can simply play roulette for fun. there is a weekly leaderboard for the luckiest. All regular bets are available.
How I built it
I built it with Alexa conversation, node.js, lambda, and the amazon game-on for leaderboard
Challenges I ran into
Some issue with Alexa conversation, how context is reset at the end of a dialogue. and debug was not very easy as this is a beta feature.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I was able to complete this first version of the game and integrate with other functionality: like game-on.
What I learned
I've learned how to use Alexa conversation! It could be useful for some of the skills I have a live! but I will wait for the beta to be done.
What's next for Roulette Game
- I wanted to be able to loose to have a re-bet capability.
- improve user experience (ie: variation of alexa answer)
- integrate with ISP if i find a way of making it fair for all players
