You and your comrades huddle in fear before the Wizard’s eerily floating head. His voice echoes loudly through the throne room. “WHY ARE YOU HERE?”
The Scarecrow stumbles forward, shaking so hard that some of his stuffing spills onto the palace floor. “I am only a scarecrow, stuffed with straw. I have no brains, and I’ve come to ask you to put brains in my head so I can make good decisions!”
The Tin Woodsman takes a brave step of his own, his metal boots clanging on the tile. “I am a Woodsman, made of tin. Therefore I have no heart, and cannot love. I pray you to give me a heart, that I may care about things that matter.”
With a low whine, the Cowardly Lion reluctantly approaches the Wizard, bowing as deeply as he can. “I am a Cowardly Lion, afraid of everything. I came to beg you to give me courage, so that I may become the King of Beasts.”
The giant, glowing face of the great and terrible Oz turns last to you. “I KNOW WHAT YOU SEEK. YOU WISH TO RETURN TO KANSAS.” He pauses a moment, as if in thought, then continues.
“I SHALL GRANT ALL YOUR REQUESTS IF YOU WILL DO A LITTLE JOB FOR ME. IT’S NOTHING, REALLY. A TEENSY-WEENSY LITTLE FAVOR. DESTROY THE MOST POWERFUL WITCH IN OZ — THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST.”
Wizard of Oz
Wizard of Oz is an interactive role-playing game built for young people. It can be accessed by any device that uses Amazon's Alexa voice service. This includes the Amazon Echo, Tap, Dot, and a host of new devices. You install the game by saying, "Alexa, enable Wizard of Oz." Then you can tell Alexa to play Wizard of Oz. (Don't say "Play THE Wizard of Oz" or Alexa will try to play the movie for you! This game is based on L. Frank Baum's book, not the movie.)
You are an adventurer who is trapped in the faraway land of Oz, in search of a great Wizard who can return you to Kansas. Along the way, you meet some friends who will help you in your quest, and you will learn something about intelligence, compassion, and bravery—brains, heart and courage—as you solve puzzles and explore a world using only your words.
