I have just bought.a.Fire Tablet which supposedly works with your Alexa. As I play some games on my Alexa how can I play them on the tablet? It appears to have some games on but the one I want doesn't come up. Also the promo indicated that one could make free phone calls, how does this work?

I have a Fire, but have to download the apps to play games. I'm not aware that you can make calls from it
I don't have a Fire tablet or any Alexa-enabled device, so I'm fumbling in the dark here. However you should be able to view all available games by going into 'Skills' on the app. (This link refers primarily to the Amazon Echo but it also mentions "or other Alexa-enabled device": https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/how-to-play-games-with-amazon-echo-and-alexa )

To make free calls using your Fire tablet, you'll need Skype (or possibly a similar app, although Skype is by far the most well known): Amazon.com User Recommendation?tag=stufftv-21

Skype lets you talk to (or video call) any other Skype user, anywhere in the world, totally free of charge. However to make calls to mobiles and landlines, you'll need to have a paid Skype subscription

And you can make free calls on facebook.
Only to your Facebook friends and only if they are online, ummm
To make calls you don't need to download anything extra, add your contacts to the Alexa app and Alexa will call over wifi. You can initiate the call on your Fire tablet as well.
Games -if you link the devices you can get a visual on the tablet.
