Here's how to assemble the laser cut acrylic case for the PyGamer. The kit comes with seven pieces of acrylic, and four screws and nuts. You've got ten button caps to pick from (you'll pick four), and you'll also want to connect the speaker and battery for the full portable experience.


If you haven't already, remove the clear plastic screen protector film from the PyGamer display.

Paper Protection

Remove the protective paper backing from both sides of all the acrylic pieces.


Plug the speaker into the speaker port on the PyGamer.

Then, remove the white oval plastic ring to expose the adhesive and press the speaker to the PyGamer where the silkscreen oval outline indicates.


Plug the battery into the on-board connector. Very carefully, bend the wires so that the battery fits the spot shown.

Button Caps

Pick four of the button caps and click them into place on the square shafts of the buttons. Which color combo will you choose?!

Case Layers

The case assembly is pretty simple. Place the clear top side piece on as shown.

Next, place the smoked gray piece on.


Flip the board over, then place the four spacer pieces onto the back as shown.


The last piece to go on is the thin bottom layer with the Feather header cutouts.


Push the four screws through from front to back, being sure they go through the holes in all layers and the PyGamer.

Screw on the nuts to secure things. Hand tight is fine -- you don't want to crack anything by using excessive force.

That's all there is to it -- you're ready to play with your PyGamer in its excellent, stylish case!
