Description

Countdown Conundrum is a simple, but challenging, word puzzle game inspired by the wonderful British TV game show, Countdown.

Gameplay is straightforward. In each round, you are given the scrambled letters of a five-to-nine letter word. A countdown clock then starts and you have thirty seconds to unscramble the letters and find the word.

It's not as easy as you might think. The words might vary in length as you continue to play. And you will feel the pressure mount as the audible timer ticks away.

Countdown Conundrum knows hundreds of words, so you are unlikely to be asked the same word twice.

This version of the game relies on your honesty. It's up to you to keep track of your score, and don't claim to have found the word if you didn't! You would only be cheating yourself, and you'll will quickly be found out in our upcoming version, which includes distractions to confound those finding it too easy, and a scoring system to save your best scores and let you compete with other players worldwide.

How to Play:

To start the game after enabling the skill, you can say:

"Alexa, play Countdown Conundrum"
"Alexa, open Countdown Conundrum"
"Alexa, start Countdown Conundrum"
"Alexa, launch Countdown Conundrum"

Tips:
- Listen carefully! The timer starts right after you hear the scrambled letters.
- Writing the letters down can help you visualise the word. But scribble quickly - the timer won't wait!
- If you're struggling, you can say "try again", for another chance with the same word. Try not to do this too often though!
