I ended up waiting a little bit to save up some money and then ordered the Waveshare Game Hat. It finally came in the mail yesterday. Will be setting it up this week.

Over the weekend I downloaded files for a case designed by zuendy on Thingiverse for my Waveshare Game Hat and had it printed by 3D Hubs. It was my first time getting something 3D Printed. I was surprised how fast it was printed, I uploaded the files and ordered it on Saturday Night and got it on Wednesday. It cost just a little over $40 to get it all printed (except the shorter anolog stick). Overall it the Design and Print came out pretty good. I just need to sand it down and paint it how I'd like it and I'm good to go.

The Waveshare Game Hat definitely needs a better case than the cheap acrylic top and bottom plate that it comes with. Overall I'm happy with the Waveshare Game Hat, the only thing I might want to do is change the clicky button switches to soft button switches.
