Pinball Rankings skill for Amazon Alexa


#1

For anyone with an Amazon Alexa device I just posted a Pinball Rankings skill which is a voice interface for IFPA Rankings. Please check it out and spread the word. I am already working on new features (upcoming nearby events, more details, etc) which should be available soon.

Feel free to leave comments, suggestions, issues or ideas.

Sounds cool. A new way to obsess. Any reason it needs to be geo restricted (I assume to US only?)


#3

Currently it is US only because if I offer it worldwide, Amazon makes me program the responses in multiple languages.

I wanted to get the initial version out there and then do frequent updates with new features.

“Alexa - how many tournaments do I need to tank to be able to play in B Division”

:slight_smile:


#5

I installed this but it wouldn’t let me save my ID.

“Open pinball rankings”
“Search for player 22952”
<Lucas Nelson …>
“Save”
<You must be in player search …>

What am I doing wrong?


#6

Same for me.


#7

Let me look at the update real quick, I just added the player ID search last night


#8

Artimage and djreddog, please try again, I resolved one issue and all should hopefully be fixed. Let me know if the problem is resolved

Mostly OT, but:

My father has the semi-endearing but increasingly tedious habit of constantly interrogating his Alexa. Recently I was gently mocking him by interjecting my own ridiculous questions, and that is how I found out that Alexa has a firm answer to “Who’s the world’s greatest pinball player?”
