Lemonade Stand is a fun, yet highly educational game that simulates owning a lemonade stand

This game skill pays homage to one of the earliest computer games, &quot;Lemonade stand&quot;. This version is completely redone from the ground up, attempting to enhance but maintain the spirit of the original game in a voice-only experience.<br/><br/>This game skill simulates owning a lemonade stand. Alexa states the weather forecast for the (simulated) day and then the player buys cups of lemonade to sell, buys signs for advertising, and sets a price for a cup of lemonade. The skill provides clear instructions what's expected of the player.<br/><br/>The game goes on forever. You will earn &quot;experience badges&quot; as you accumulate playing time and earn money selling lemonade.<br/><br/>This is a great game for children, parents to play with their children or educators in a classroom. The game focuses on the following player skills: careful listening, math, money, business, understanding odds and chance statements, and managing expectations.<br/><br/>At any time you can ask &quot;what's the weather&quot; or say &quot;tell me the weather&quot; to have Alexa repeat the weather forecast.<br/><br/>You can find out how much money you've earned by asking &quot;how much do I have&quot; or &quot;how much money do I have&quot;. To have the simulated game day number repeated, you can ask &quot;what's the day&quot;.<br/><br/>To see what badges you've earned, say &quot;Alexa, badges&quot;.<br/><br/>You can ask for contextual help by saying &ldquo;Alexa, help&rdquo;, immediately go to the next simulated day by saying &ldquo;Alexa, next day&rdquo;, or stop the game by saying &ldquo;Alexa, stop&rdquo; or &quot;Alexa, cancel&quot; to end your game.<br/><br/>Your current scores and badges are saved unless you reset your game or disable the skill.<br/><br/>You will start with five dollars. If you go under two dollars, you will automatically be bumped back up to five.<br/><br/>If you want to reset your game to the beginning (without disabling the skill and enabling it again), you can say &quot;Alexa, clean slate&quot; and then repeat the magic words Alexa tells you to say.<br/><br/>Tip: When say a price for a cup of lemonade, include the words &quot;dollars&quot; and &quot;cents&quot; where appropriate. Good examples are, &quot;a dollar&quot;, &quot;a dollar twenty-five&quot;, &quot;two dollars and twenty-five cents&quot;, &quot;seventy-five cents&quot;
