Spark Fun created our own version of this game that now runs on the ATmega328 chip (the same microcontroller as the one on the Arduino Uno).
Be careful to line up the BLK and GRN markings on the FTDI Basic with the labels on the Simon. This is because we are using the internal oscillator on the ATMega328 instead of a separate crystal as on the Arduino Uno or on our Red Board.
Under the Tools menu in Arduino, change the board type to .
If you haven’t played around with XBee, take a look at the materials from our Xciting Xbees class. In fact, we’re going to just use two XBees with their standard factory settings.
As a note - this will only work with two XBees in a single room.
Now - remember there are two easter-eggs in this code.
