Thanks you guys so much for creating this opportunity! It’s been a real challenge building the project, but I’ve learned much in the process. Guess I don’t have to play Snake on a home made clock anymore :wink:

Special thanks to @wgbartley for his inspiration and code, and @peekay123 for his matrix shield and words of wisdom, they both made the project soooo much more doable.


Congratulations to all the winners! :thumbsup:
