What can’t Alexa do? The smart Amazon device can set alarms, report the weather and news, help you buy items from Amazon, and save electricity by turning off appliances. You can even ask Alexa to send you a free sample. But the device isn’t all work and no play. Heck, there’s even an Alexa guessing game, not to mention thousands of strategy, trivia, and guessing contests for your family game night or when your kids are bored.
