Can't install numpy or pygame with pip Python 3.6

Question

I recently upgraded to Python 3.6 on Windows 10 in order to use the newest formatting syntax for a text-based RPG game that I am programming currently. The game requires the use of 2 external modules (numpy and pygame) to work.

I've tried the usual command pip install module_name in the cmd but it throws me an error message.

After browsing SO I've used the commands pip install --upgrade pip to upgade pip and it was at the latest version already. I also used the command pip install --upgrade wheel and my wheel was upgraded to the latest version. I also used the command pip install --upgrade setuptools and my setuptools was upgraded to the latest version.

I tried again, and still nothing. Neither module will install.

EDIT: I tried easy_install module_name with both numpy and pygame and neither of them were installed. I also tried pip3.6 install --trusted-host pypi.python.org numpy and that didn't work.

I've asked this as a seperate question since I've tried what was suggested in other SO questions and it hasn't worked. Plus, this concerns both numpy and pygame modules, and no other question does.

My error message for pygame:

Answers to Can&#39;t install numpy or pygame with pip Python 3.6 ( 1 )

    I had the same problem.

    Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools.

    Go to this page and download the .whl file that suits your Python and Windows version. In my case it's pygame‑1.9.2‑cp36‑cp36m‑win_amd64.whl since I use Python 3.6.0 and Windows 64bits. Paste the file in the Python folder (in my case it's C:\Python)

    Next, while holding shift, right click the Python installation folder and choose "Open command window here". A cmd window will open.

    Enter the following:

    pip install setuptools
    
    pip install wheel
    

    After Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools is installed, install numpy with:

    pip install numpy
    

    If you downloaded pygame‑1.9.2‑cp36‑cp36m‑win_amd64.whl, install Pygame with:

    pip install pygame‑1.9.2‑cp36‑cp36m‑win_amd64.whl
    

    Or else change pygame‑1.9.2‑cp36‑cp36m‑win_amd64.whl to the name of the file you downloaded.

    Before you enter the previous command, make sure the file you downloaded is in the Python folder (in my case, C:\Python\pygame‑1.9.2‑cp36‑cp36m‑win_amd64.whl) and you copied the whole file name including the .whl extension or else it won't work.

    This should install both numpy and pygame.
