Amazon has now released to GitHub a new Alexa template that should help simplify the ability for developers to build trivia game skills that make use of the company’s Echo Buttons.
Echo Buttons are Amazon’s external devices that pair with an Echo speaker for direct input for questions posted by Alexa skills.

This is a sample skill using a set of built in trivia questions that will allow developers to get a head start on their trivia game skill using buttons. It allows for roll-call of the players, asking trivia questions and determining whether the voice inputs matched the answers.
