It’s game time! Build a game that people will love to play with Alexa for a chance to win $1,000 and an Amazon Echo. We welcome university students from around the world to build new Alexa skills for this exciting challenge.

The Challenge:

Is there a game that you love that you’d like to make available for Alexa? Do you have an idea for an all new, original game? Whether it’s a single-player or multi-player game, use your creative mind to build a top-ranking gaming skill for a chance to win.

Need ideas? Get inspired by some of our most popular game skills:

  • Jeopardy! - Test your knowledge on categories including sports, pop culture, and more.
  • Game of Trivia – The perfect skill for a Game of Thrones fan. Test your knowledge of the Seven Kingdoms with your friends.
  • Song Quiz - Guess the correct song title and artist. Challenge friends and family in live competitions or compete against other music fans.
  • Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock - Challenge Alexa in a Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock competition as seen on ‘The Big Bang Theory’.
  • Would You Rather for Family – An addicting game where you make a choice between two lighthearted and silly situations.

We can’t wait to see what you build! Need another reason to participate? Developers who build eligible highly-engaging skills can earn money every month.
