This is a somewhat simplified VUI for the skill and code on the Pi. I simplified aspects due to the fact that there in a game there are so many steps and intents that showing them all will be time consuming but not much more informative. Instead, intents are grouped by category and simplified explanations of the processing is givien.


Email Command Latest Version
Run this on your Pi to update the LEDs in response to your actions. This will be updated with fancier animations soon.
Alexa Skill
Use this along with the guide to create your Alexa skill.
