Electronic Checkers

Ok, here's the thing. I need to build an electronic checkers game.

Location system: I am going to use 32 bi-colored LED's to indicate the locations of the pieces. Let's say... the LED's are red and green. Player 1 is red, and player 2 is green. I want to have two 8-key keypad on both sides of the board to control where the pieces, (LED's) will go. I only need 32 led's because even though there are 64 spaces, there are only 32 that you can be on.

Control system: On the top and left side of the board, I'm going to have letters and numbers lined up with each space. Thus, the keypads. It will be laid out much like a battleship board, and the keypad keys will be labeled: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 (for keypad 1) and A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H (for keypad 2). (So I'll need 4 keypads, two for player 1 and two for player 2.) You should get the idea. And sorry if that was too hard to understand. :oops:

I also need an LED on both sides of the board to tell the players whose turn it is. (LED 1 lights up when it's player 1's turn, and LED 2 lights up when it's player 2's turn.) Please tell me if there's something important that I'm forgetting about.

I'm guessing I'll probably have to use a pic chip for this. And even if I do... can someone give me some ideas please? Schematics? Or anything else? If it's even possible to create? :lol: Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks.

P.S. I'll probably draw up a picture and post it later, so that should help. :wink:

:lol: So you keep track of my posts huh? Well, I'm still working on it, but I still can't figure out how to get the dual 7-segment thing worked out. So I think I may be going with the matrix type.
