GAME: Ask Alexa (or any “assistant”)

Totally stole this from Jimmy Fallon!

Watch it here – starts about 22:30

The way the game works is contestants “draw” a word from a jar (or a randomizer on the screen), the host can do this and show it to the camera. The contestant then has to ask Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant etc. a question that prompts the assistant to say the word, but they can’t use the word itself.

For example, the word may be “Saxophone” and the question could be “What instrument does Bill Clinton play?”

If the Assistant says the word, you get a point, you can also award extra points if it’s the first word to be said.

How I used this in my context
Used as a Zoom game during small groups.
