What can’t Alexa do? The smart device can set alarms, report the weather and news, help you buy items from Amazon, and control appliances. But the device isn’t all work and no play. Heck, there’s even an Alexa guessing game, not to mentional thousands of strategy, trivia, and guessing contests for your family game night or in moments of boredom.
