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!
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’.

This August we’d like to see all of your Circuit Playground projects! Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, regardless of how recently you completed a project with Circuit Playground, share it on Facebook, G+, Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter with #AdafruitExtraCredit #CircuitPlayground and submit it at Adafruit.com/extracredit for a chance to have your project featured on the Adafruit Blog and maybe even a surprise Adafruit treat!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
