This project has the benefit of being highly adaptable, with changes able to be made in MakeCode and implemented with lightning speed. 

If you would like to lengthen the amount of time the speaker has before the timer starts beeping, it's as simple as adjusting two numbers, downloading the new UF2 file, and dragging it over onto your Circuit Playground Express.

Firstly, go to the on start block and change the value in set seconds to from 60 to, say, 120 to change it to a 2 minute timer. Make sure you mirror this change in the same instance in the on shake block, otherwise the timer will reset itself back to a 1 minute timer when it's shaken!

Game Time?
