Our story

Product Description

Welcome to When in Rome, the travel trivia game powered by Alexa where real people ask the questions! Players set up the board, connect to the ‘When in Rome’ Alexa skill, divide into two teams and get ready to travel the world from the comfort of their home. With 20 cities to visit and a friendly local asking questions about their city, Alexa steers players through the game as the teams compete to make new friends, earn upgrade cards and collect souvenirs in each new city they visit. The combination of beautiful components, real locals, emergent game-play and Alexa playing host makes Voice Originals When In Rome an unforgettable board game experience. Requires free When In Rome skill for Amazon Alexa to play. Board game includes; 1 game board, 2 player tokens, 18 friend tokens, 14 upgrade cards and 5 souvenirs

The World’s first Alexa – connected board game

When In Rome is the first in the new series of Voice Originals board games from Beasts of Balance creator Sensible Object. Designed to be played with a smart speaker, each Voice Original game pairs up with a free Alexa skill that guides players through the game; teaching them the rules, keeping track of the score and delivering immersive audio. Our mission is to create great games designed to be played face-to-face with friends and family that combine the best of physical, digital and human play.

Travel trivia with a twist

Answering questions correctly about each city earns players points or the chance to earn an upgrade card. Choose from 7 categories including Language and Slang, Art and Culture, Sport and Games, Food and Drink, Buildings and History, Myths and Legends or Random and Strange!

Collect souvenirs

Souvenirs reveal themselves throughout the game for extra points; answer a question correctly on a city with a souvenir to earn extra points. Collect all 3 souvenirs, the game ends and the winner is the team with the most points!

Earn upgrade cards

"Alexa, upgrade please, I love traffic jams!" pick up upgrade cards to gain an edge or roast your opponents.

Let Alexa be your guide!

Alexa teaches you the rules, keeps score, flies you around the world, introduces you to friendly locals and keeps you entertained.

Travel the world without leaving home!

Visit 20 cities across 6 continents from London to Mumbai and Cape Town to Tokyo; meet real locals and find out about what makes each city tick.
