Hey Justin,

Nice twist on a timer, this would be great for games and exercises.

If you haven’t seen it before, checkout the extract_number method.

You can import it into your Skill with:

from mycroft.util import extract_number

It handles all the messiness of trying to pull a number out of a string with all the different ways people can say them.
