> Sounds as though what is wanted in a Pythonic version of an early electronic game "Simon" that was marketed back in the late 70's.  It was roughly Frisbee shaped although slightly larger.  The top was divided into four quadrant-shaped paddles each of a different color.  The game consisted of Simon generating longer and longer sequences of random color-sound flashes (each element in the sequence consisted of a momentary sound accompanied by the appropriate quadrant lighting up).  After Simon had generated a sequence, the player had to duplicate it by pressing the paddles.  A successful recreation of a sequence was rewarded by Simon generating a longer one, until the player finally screwed up.  At that point Simon made an electronic rude noise and the device was handed on to the next player if there were multiple players.  The player who succeeded in matching the longest sequence was the winner of that round.

Thanks Bill. I did some more searching and managed to find a few new
versions on youtube with altered gameplay i guess. Here's the closest
to what has been described here:
