Coded up a bot to help with remembering rules, and keeping track of attack/defense for GWC. Mostly for giggles at this point, although I'd love to do more chart-intensive games like RAF.




Full explanation, including code:

This is the future.

I need this at work: "I'm setting up a log drain on an Aptible container with Influx, what's the first step?"

Didn't know there'd be this much interest. Sure, let me come up with a more "general public" version that encompasses the whole rulebook and has error checking.

We'll probably end up getting Hal 9000.

Just ordered an Alexa - didn't know there was an API. I thought they only turned on your lights, played music and spied on you.

@Danny,

This is just a great idea.

I've already started working on the Google Assistant tutorial and I'm going to see if I can do the same thing for some of the COIN games.

This could be better than using an app assist.

Thanks. Yeah we should do a collaboration project. Although I think I'm going 100% Amazon framework after seeing Best Buy yesterday. Echos were selling 10x more than Googles.

I was looking at the Amazon framework too and I'm planning on trying them both out. From a coding point of view I think Amazon would be easier for me, but I really like the conversation flow that Google Actions provide.

Would definitely, be interested in a collaboration project. I just need to get up to speed on these frameworks, before jumping into a project.

And every time you ask about a rule it would reply: "Much you have to learn."
