In-skill purchases is the app store of voice commands for your Alexa device, allowing for third-party developers to contribute to the new platform is setting the foundations for a future mainstream adoption into voice commanded devices.

Games that will be featured on the new subscription side of Alexa will be Match Game, Heads Up and a trivia game from the History Channel. These in-skill purchases and the subscription are currently both in preview and will be made available to a larger number of people sometime next year.
