Hey Robot, the immensely clever board game from designer Frank Lantzs Everybody House Games, now has a free digital version on the web for anyone to play. Lantz says he and his collaborators, which include his wife Hilary and his son and daughter-in-law, threw together a quick & dirty online version of Hey Robot for people to play during quarantine. Its available here.
The game is played much like classic Taboo, except with digital assistants and smart speakers. Youre given a word, and you have to try to get Amazons Alexa, Apples Siri, or Google Assistant to say it aloud without you saying it first. (Probably best to stick with Amazon or Google on the assistant side, for good measure).
