Is it possible for me to use a normal pi zero? I've got a spare and tempted to use it on this project
Yeah, it just won't have wifi or bluetooth, which isn't the end of the world. Otherwise it will act the same.

I think it's possible. If there is no WiFi, then You can connect the USB flash drive and keyboard using a USB hub. Then use the file manager to load the game.

The main thing is not to apply power to the Raspberry microUSB.

alternatively, you can buy a cheap wifi usb dongle and use that when needed:

Just scooped one up! Should be a fun project.

Do you have these ready to ship? Or will they all be shipping together out in a few weeks/months?

Just curious! Thanks again for offering these

Could only find the battery in china, so it will take while to get here.

Is it possible to use it powered from the charger without a battery connected?

Better not to do that. I tried, works not stable.
