This is another skill from LME, who brought you Crystal Ball last week. This one is a little more to it.
Ease of Use: 3 out of 5. The user interface for the game is pretty straightforward. It's easy to learn, but there are a few detracting points. Games can go on for quite a while. An actual bingo caller mixes it up a bit in how they tell you the number and column. This skill doesn't, and since the tone can't change, it gets a little monotonous. The other problem is that, although it's pretty good at recognition, you end up saying "next" enough times that it eventually gets it wrong. After that, it's game over. There's no way to restart a game. Same thing happens if the skill crashes in the middle, or you are pulled away for a moment. That last quibble is that the text on the card is clearly the same text that gets read out. You can tell because it is punctuated to put in pauses for the speech synthesis. It would have been a nice touch if the card text was formatted for reading.
Usefulness: 4 out of 5. If you like Bingo, then it's great. If you don't, you needn't bother. I can see you keeping a table of a few kids of exactly the right age entertained with this for a while. But it's a little hard. Any chatter is going to confuse Alexa and reset the game. But, for the right age, that just adds to the gameplay.
Novelty: 3 out of 5. It is an interesting enough idea. In my search for simple games that work for the Echo, I never thought of this. The execution is straightforward though. No particularly nifty lessons to take home and apply to your own skills.
Overall: 4 out of 5. Bingo is a solid player app for The Echo. If you like it, you'll probably use it a lot. If you don't, you won't.
