With its affordable price and usefulness, Amazon's Echo Dot is finding itself in more and more homes. We all know Alexa can play music, read books, set alarms and timers. But did you know she can help you pass the time with games?

Check these out!

Akinator  - Think of a character, real or fictional, and Alexa will try to read your mind! She's actually quite good. She was able to guess Anakin Skywalker, Qui Gon Jin, Tim McIlrath (singer of Rise Against), The Crow, Iceman from Top Gun, Judy Hopps (Zootopia), and Kyrie Irving. I only stumped her once.

Music Quiz - Test your music moxie with Alexa. She'll give you multiple choice answers to choose from. These questions are hard, so bring your A game!

Guess the Celebrity Alexa will ask you 10 questions. You have to guess the celebrity she is referring to. My best score was 9/10.

Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock - Don't want to do the dishes? Tell Alexa to play rock paper scissors!

Earplay - One of several choose your adventure games that you can play.

BONUS: Lost the dice to your game? Tell Alexa to roll the dice! Need a 15-sided die? Just ask Alexa to roll it!
