A rudimentary two-person Last-Man-Standing game was programmed with Python. The game cannot differentiate between different players and each tagger must be hard-coded with the characteristics of the player and opponent.

A list of changes for the firmware was created which included changing from transmitting in HEX to transmitting in decimal instead. Python seems to appreciate decimal better and it should make programming easier in the long run. Also, the technique of toggling the outputs should be replaced with a protocol which expects a 0 or 1 to set the output definitively. Using only a signal to toggle was leading to issues where lights would miss a signal to toggle and become inverted.
