From the Forums: a game show LED scoreboard #Trinket #NeoMatrix #Adafruit

game show LED scoreboard

Adafruit forum poster Disciple was on the Adafruit Show & Tell show December 12th demonstrating a game show LED scoreboard.

Now comes an accompanying Adafruit Forum post describing the complete build tutorial. The display is an Adafruit 32×8 NeoMatrix controlled by an Adafruit Pro Trinket 5v (or an Adafruit Metro). Users control the system using an infrared remote control which is way handy.

The game play proceeded like this.

  • Each audience member held a small flag which was used to signal a color choice, yellow or blue.
  • The game had four rounds. Each round would start with a small church skit that would pause at a certain point.
  • The audience was challenged to decide “What would Jesus do?” and was given two possible answers tagged with the two colors.
  • Everyone would indicate their choices with the flags, and numbers would be tallied for each color answer, and posted on the scoreboard.
  • The skit would conclude and the color of the correct answer would get its tally added to the total score.
  • After four rounds, if the total score was greater than the number of audience members playing, victory was declared and prizes awarded (plus a gospel message and prayer). No audience lost the game that day, as intended.

The code is in Arduino, very well written with great comments.

Check out the entire build to make your own, excellent project!
