Fake History Selected for Award

Fake History Finalist for Storytelling Alexa Skill of the Year

“Alexa, open Fake History”

The Tellables Fake History Amazon Alexa skilled has been nominated by VoiceFirst.FM as a finalist for “Skill of the Year” in the “Digital Book World Storytelling” category. Winners in all categories are to be announced at the upcoming Alexa Conference in Chattanooga, TN from January 15-17.

It’s a huge honor to be selected as a finalist for storytelling skill of the year. We’d like to thank the contributing authors who helped us craft the many history puzzles contained within the game.

Learning History While Having Fun

Fake History is a voice-driven game that challenges a player’s knowledge of obscure historical facts. We designed the experience to be both entertaining and educational. Players have an opportunity to gain new insights on people, events, and places in history while trying to find the history book with “the right answer.”

Uses the Formula of Tricky Genie

The Fake History voice app is modeled after our very popular Tricky Genie game. Whereas Tricky Genie offers fun critical thinking challenges geared toward children and families, the Fake History app presents harder puzzles to solve, all revolving around real topics in history.
