Think you can outsmart the tricky genie? Try this game that’s suitable for all ages. Alexa will tell you a quick story about one or more characters that get themselves into a difficult predicament. The tricky genie will appear holding three sacks. One sack contains the very best solution to the problem. The genie will only give you two chances to pick the sack with the best solution. But the genie may try to trick you into being satisfied with a solution that isn't the best one.
After each game, you can choose to have Alexa ask you two questions about the story to train your listening comprehension skills.

The questions are too easy for adults. You should have one game for children and one for adults. Also, there should be hints as to what is in each bag so you could decide which to chose. I like the idea of the game.
When it's good, it can be fun and challenging. The biggest issue is that some of the writing prompts assume you are selecting answers in a particular order or, in one instance, are programmed incorrectly so that you will get it wrong even if you select correctly (Grandma's Book Club is messed up and will TELL you that the third sack is correct IN THE ANSWER but then tell you that Sack 2 was correct because, guess what, it contained what was supposed to be in Sack 3).
As well as these showstoppers, it can be a little verbose playing multiple rounds and waiting waiting waiting for the game to let you do something. A faster mode would be appreciated.
