Three methods to check this:
apt-cache to search and
apt-get to install :
apt-cache search pygame
python-pygame - SDL bindings for games development in Python
sudo apt-get install python-pygame
pip install Pygame
3. Manual installation:
obs: check the python version you need to install, in case you use Python3, employ:
pip3 install Pygame
Go to python/scripts folder, open a command window to this path, type the following command line:
C:\python34\scripts> python -m pip install pygame --user
To examine it, open python IDE and type

I only successfully installed Pygame 1.9.2a0-cp35 on Windows and it runs with Python 3.5.1.
Install Python, and keep in mind the install location
Go here and download
Move the downloaded .whl file to your
Open a command prompt in the
Scripts directory (
Right click in the directory >
Open a command window here)
Enter the command:
pip3 install pygame-1.9.2a0-cp35-none-win32.whl
In case you obtain an error in the last step, attempt:
python -m pip install pygame-1.9.2a0-cp35-none-win32.whl
And that must do it. Tested as performing on Windows 10 64bit.
