A few things definitely went wrong. I originally had two parallel LED circuits on the breadboard, each reacting with their own digital input pin. The fortuneteller acted as a switch. When the aluminum foil contacts touched, it completed the circuit, setting the switchRed == HIGH and lighting the first group of LEDs. When it wasn’t HIGH, the other parallel circuit would complete. Digital input took me awhile because I have an impulse to want to connect it to ground. One thing that irks me is why there appears to be a lag with the LEDs. It takes awhile for the LEDs to turn off, three seconds after the contact stops. I wonder if I’m not using the right components, or if the amps are so low in parallel that it takes longer for them to work their way through the circuit.
