When in Rome, from London-based developer Voice Originals, is a family-oriented two-player (or two-team) board game in which Alexa tests your knowledge of world geography, language and culture. You set up the game board, which depicts a colorful world map; enable the When in Rome Alexa skill; and say, “Alexa, open When in Rome” — and your Echo device (or any other Alexa-enabled device) will take you the rest of the way.
