Blueprint skill definition

I was just looking over the rules and it said that blueprint skills weren’t allowed. Would a skill built off of the ‘nodejs-adventure-game-skill’ repo be a “blueprint” skill? We added sound effects, made checkpoint systems and had custom welcome back messages displaying facts and the sorts. The repo shows steps for publishing the app on the app store too.

    Hey! You can build something similar to a Blueprint skill, however, the Alexa Blueprint skills cannot be submitted and published to the Skill Store. Certification is a requirement for eligibility and Blueprint skills can only be run on your own Echo device or shared on a small scale. Check out the FAQs: https://blueprints.amazon.com/help/frequently-asked-questions#help-content

    If you build using those templates you cannot submit for certification which is why they are ineligible here.

    Hope that helps!
