Need small battery powered UV emitting LED light for board game

I'm in need of a couple dozen battery powered "throwie" styled (read: super simple)  UV light emitting LED's for a board game prototype.  

The devices (12 total) will be built into simple chipboard player pieces on a stand.  I'd like the entire piece (including the chipboard and stand) to be no larger that 1" x 2" x 1", but here is the catch!

Each piece will start with 3 pegs placed in the stand (a la the classic board game "Life")  that keep the light on as long as there is at least 1 peg in.  Don't know if this would mean they are pressing a button or completing the circuit, but whichever is safest is ideal!

I also need a 2nd version that will operate with a simple on/off switch or button that can be housed in a small piece of foam core board (.25" thick, approx. 2"x 2" piece).  I need 12 of these as well.


Concept sketch attached, but more detailed information will be provided upon inquiry.  I would need them to be completed and delivered by Friday, June 8th, 2012.

Thanks in advance for your help (whoever the helpful soul may be!)!

I wonder if these would work for you...

cheap anyway,
And what about making a slot in one side so if you want to turn it on or off you just have to take out the battery. And if you want to close the slot, you only have to put a special piece of wood on that side. If you want a drawing just send me a message.
