Step 1. Install Arduino IDE, drivers & board package

Before you start, you'll need to follow the guide for your particular board to install the Arduino IDE, drivers and board support package so that you can upload code to it via Arduino

Step 2. Install Arcada Libraries

We use quite a number of libraries to access the display, sound, buttons, etc.

Visit the Arcada library page to install all the libraries listed (yes that's a dozen!)

Step 3. Install Adafruit Version Gamebuino Library

In addition to the Arcada libraries, you'll need the Adafruit-tweaked versions of the Gamebuino lirbary. We will install it manually, not through the library manager, so download the Zip and then select Add .ZIP Library... to install

These replace the existing library but adds support for Arcada boards, for that reason, you should remove any existing library you have with this name!
