The digital is coming more into the world of the real in board games with Days of Wonder's announcement of Alexa skills for Ticket to Ride. Now, you can simply have your Amazon assistant run you through a game. No more rulebook required.
From the announcement:
Amazon and Days of Wonder are changing how players experience board games by introducing the first official Alexa skills for Ticket to Rideand Ticket to Ride Europe for free to welcome new players aboard the award-winning games by Alan R. Moon and act as conductors for even the most experienced rail-riders.
These skills replace the rule books by taking players on a guided experience of the games and offer the option to use it as an additional player. We are excited to announce that both official skills are available now in English and French languages in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France.
