A fun logic puzzle game for friends and family! And a great way to practice reasoning or math skills.

This is a logic puzzle game. The goal is to guess a 3-digit number in the least number of attempts. Alexa generates a 3-digit number with unique digits to begin.

For instance, if the original number is 123 and user guesses 325 - Alexa will tell the user that they have 1 bull (for digit 2 and it's accurate position) and 1 cow (for digit 3, without accurate position). <br/><br/>Please read this wiki page for a detailed description: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulls_and_Cows<br/><br/>More detailed instructions below on using the skills:<br/><br/>Step 1: Start the game by prompting Alexa<br/>You: &quot;Alexa, open cows bulls&quot;<br/>Alexa: &quot;Welcome to Cows and Bulls number guessing game.
