In this guide we will use our Circuit Playground to create a fun and simple game you can play with your friends. It's an old timey game called Hot Potato. Yep. People used to make games with potatoes.
No soldering required! (also no potato required)
In addition to a Circuit Playground, you will need some form of battery power so you can play the game without being attached to a computer. Choose an option that works for how you plan to make your 'potato'.
(also need AAA batteries)
If you go with the LiPo battery, be sure you have a way to charge it.
If you are new to the Circuit Playground, you may want to first read these overview guides.
This project will use the Arduino IDE. Make sure you have added the board support for the Circuit Playground as well as installed the Circuit Playground library. MUST DO BOTH. This is covered in the guides linked above.
