If you are on a Linux platform that allows you to "apt-get install python-pygame" or "yum install pygame" or "pacman -S python2-pygame" then that will be easiest. You may get an older build of Pygame.

You won't be able to use Python installers, like "pip install pygame" because it is pointed at even older versions that it cannot download.

You mention you grabbed the zip file with the source. Start with that and run a "python setup.py install", which will configure, compile, and install pygame for you. You'll need to make sure you have the Pygame dependencies installed, which is all the SDL-dev libraries, along with a few others.

How exactly do you install pygame?  I find nothing out there.

I'm guessing - put the unzipped files in the python folder?

copy the files
in the Include to the python33/include
in the lib to the python33\lib

that is, add them to the others in those folders?
