||“Turn prompts off.” This tells Alexa to stop saying “What do you want to do now” after every room description. You can also say “Turn short descriptions on,” which tells Alexa to read the shorter description for any room that you’ve visited in a previous session (unless you say, look around, in which case you will get the long version).

|Drink a liquid

|Get a detailed description of the room you are in
||You can also say "I am lost," "Where am I," "Describe this room."
|Get a hint (Shadow Realm only)

||Link my account.
||"Link my account." You can also say, "Days Fly."
|Move an object (Escape Room only)
||"Move the table." The same thing as picking something up (in Realm you'd say, "Pick up the table").
|Move to a new location
||"Go north," south, up, through the door, to the passage, through the hole, to the north door, etc. You can also say "Move." If the exit is a stairway or a ladder, you can use the word "climb" instead of "go."
|Open something which is closed
||"Open the chest." You can also say, "Open the door with the key." You cannot open a door that is unlocked; you simply need to go through it.
|Pause the game briefly while you're thinking.
||Give me a second.
||"Give me a second." You can also say, "Give me a moment," "Hold on a second," "Hang on a moment." Buys you 10 seconds of silence.
|Pick something up
||Pick up _______________.
||"Pick up the sword." You can also say "get" (though less likely Alexa will get confused if you say pick up).
|Play a different character (assuming you have more than one character)
||I want to play ____________.
||"I want to play Merlin." Or you can tell it the number of the character in your list, "I want to play two." (In the UK version, you can only say the number of the character.)
|Pour a liquid or something containing liquid (Escape Room only)
||Pour ______ into _______
||"Pour the flask into the cauldron." Essentially the same thing as saying, "Use the flask on the cauldron"
(which is how you'd say it in Realm).
|Press something (Escape Room only)
||Press the _____________
||"Press the button." This is essentially the same thing as using something that is "pressable," like a button or a switch. So in Realm you'd say, "Use the switch."
|Quit the game
||You can also say, "Game over," or "I'm done playing," or "Stop."
||"Read the note."
|Run away from combat
||"Say abracadabra." This is normally used to say something generally and might require you to mention a specific creature if you want to have a conversation. E.g., "Say hello to the dragon." If the thing you are saying is magical, you can also use the word "Cast."
|Search for something that is hidden
||"Search the room." "Search the pile of leaves."
|Shoot something (requires an item that can be shot)
||Shoot ____________ at ____________.
||"Shoot an arrow at the dragon."

||"Tie the string to the kite." This is essentially the same thing as using something like a rope or string on something else. So in Realm you would say, "Use the rope on the tree."
|Use an item
||"Use the sword." If the item is used on something to achieve a result, you can include an indirect object. For example, "Use the key on the north door."
