After finding the reason for CircuitPython crashes in #µGame and getting the audio amplifier to work, version 4.1 has pretty much all the parts that I wanted to have. However, its physical layout is somewhat problematic, especially the rather large speaker smack in the middle of the board, which makes it hard to add a battery there.

So I started working on version 4.2. So far I have the following changes:

I think that 4.2 will be the last prototype, at least if everything works as expected.
