Ambilight Clones, Windows, and Arduino

Long, long ago, when I first heard of Philips Ambilight, I thought it was one of the coolest silly things I'd ever heard of. Today, much later, I finally have gotten around to rolling my own Ambilight clone using an Arduino Nano and WS2812B strips. I did not have to write any code, because other people have already done it for me. Figuring out which people had done what properly took me the better part of a day, so I will now share my knowledge with you here. This should be a cross-platform (Win/Lin/Mac) solution, but I have only tested on Windows.

Beer 99

Game Type: 
Boot Factor: 

An interesting card game involving that "new" math. Mid level buzz factor. Supplies: people, beer, and a deck of cards.

The object of the game is to play cards into a pile and have the value of the pile equal 99. You start off by dealing four cards to each player, then turn the top card over. Play goes around the circle with each person playing a card, mentally keeping track of total value of the pile.
