Play the game "Connect-Four" against Alexa. Alternating each player throws a coloured disc into one of the seven slots. The player who connects four discs in a row (horizontally, verically or diagonal) has won.<br/><br/>this skill was optimized for the display of the Echo Show. The game board is shown on the Echo Show. <br/><br/>But you can play this skill also on devices without a display. Just open the website https://calcbox.de and establish a connection with your device.<br/><br/>The following commands can be used during the game:<br/><br/>* "I throw into slot ..." (1-7)<br/>* "You may start"<br/>* "Start a new game"<br/>* "Change the playing skill level to ..." (1-7)<br/>* "Help"<br/>* "Stop"<br/><br/>After you have made your move, Alexa is making her move and awaits your next move as an answer .<br/>The time, Alexa waits four your answer, is short (about 8 seconds).<br/><br/>But never mind, the game board is still shown on the display. If you want to make your move, you have to add the activation word (Alexa/Echo/Computer/Amazon), e.g. "Alexa, Slot 4" and the game continues.<br/><br/>If you wait even longer, also the game board is not shown any more. But as soon as you restart the skill with "Alexa, start Connect-Four" the game board is shown again at the point you left the game.<br/><br/>If a game is not continued after 4 hours it will be quitted automatically.<br/><br/>The sources (Java / NodeJS) are available at GitHub:<br/>https://github.com/ferenc-hechler/EchoShowSkill<br/><br/>Every kind of feedback is welcome, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org<br/><br/>PS: I am not a native speaker, so please help me to correct misspelled words / wrong phrases / ... by sending me an email.
