For some vaguely-fitness-related tips and a quick look at how to look up calory values on the A-lady check out today's skill.


DTD147 Harry Potter Letters

June 25, 2017

Today we're looking at another in the excellent series of skills where you're pitched against the A-lady to see who can name the most items starting with a certain letter - in this case on the topic of the boy who lived. And don't forget that you-know-who' starts with a 'V'.


DTD146 Six Swords

June 24, 2017

Probably the most sophisticated D&D-style skill to date, Six Swords leads you through a complex landscape with complicated gameplay. This one takes interactive fiction games to a new level.


DTD145 Name Letters and America Letters

June 23, 2017

Two more skills in the '... Letters' series. Can you pull boys and girls names out of the air quickly enough to beat the A-lady? Can you be similarly swift with US states, state capitals and national parks? Will this be a red letter day for mental dexterity?

DTD141 Country Letters and Capital Letters

June 19, 2017

Today's skills are spookily similar to the Animal Letters skill we've already covered, but with different topics and groovy sound effects. Enjoy.


DTD140 Word Games

June 18, 2017

Anagrams, hangman and more according to the description, but as yet only anagrams have revealed themselves to me in this good word-based skill which also includes the ability to battle your friends.


DTD139 New reminder notifications

June 17, 2017

We're still without voice calling or messaging here in the UK (sob) but at least we now get reminder notifications on our beloved Echos. I also finish off this episode with a quick reminder (see what I did there?) that you can download all 139 episodes to date and also very cheekily and brazenly ask for you to take 2mins to put up a review on iTunes.
