So its that time of the year once again time when once all of the gifts have been opened and the turkey and stuffing has been eaten you can watch the queens speech or you could play a game ( to be fair you could do both! )
The travel trivia game where real people ask the questions! Visit twenty cities, meet the locals and make new friends... without ever leaving home. Alexa is your game show host, teaching you how to play, asking questions, introducing you to locals in each city and keeping score.
You can buy your own copy of the game via Amazon
When In Rome is now fully compatible with Echo Buttons. Go head to head with your opponents using Buttons for even more drama and excitement!
Try the game for free with the When In Rome Question of the Day. Travel to a new city and meet a new local each week and answer a new question every day. Just ask "Alexa, open When In Rome"!
*** Full game requires "When in Rome" board game (£24.99) to play. Out now on Amazon.co.uk ***

At first i was a little worried as most go the time our Alexa will say " hmm i don't know " when i ask her a question ! and to be honest we use her mostly for a radio, So i was very pleased at just how easy it was to set up the game and to play.
Not only is the game app free , Alexa will keep score and this stops anyone from cheating ( something my family is known for! ) She is also game master so no need to pick a player to always read out the questions.
We all found the game really fun and the children ( and i ) learnt a lot from our quizmaster Alexa . The aim of the game is to travel around the world making friends with the locals and picking up souvenirs along the way, the questions come in a range of categories (from slang and language to food and drink, and even random and strange)! Answering questions correctly will reward players with valuable souvenirs and earn them Explorer Points.
(Smart speaker not included)
The game is targeted at over 13 but i think if under 13 year olds are paired with adults they will do fine and also enjoy this game, its definitely impressive alone with the fact that your speaker can become quizmaster i enjoyed this game and i can see us playing it lots over the christmas period, This game would also make a great gift for a travel fan or as an add on gift if you have brought an Alexa product for an loved one this year,
