This is my instrucatable on a very easy to make game. It is for two players and is very good as a travel game. The game flashes a colour and the players have to find an object of that colour. The first person to do so wins. 

How you play:

The red / red and green leds with flash. Then one of the leds will turn on. When this happens the players have to find an object of that colour. Once they have they must press and hold their switch. If they are first then all the colours will flash and then a colour will light up (red for player 1, sw1 or yellow for player 2, sw2). Then they say what the object is and any player presses their switch and a new colour will be picked.

Step 1: The step of find or buy

For this game you will need:

1x picaxe 08m chip,  www.rapidonline.com (part 13-0824) picture 1
1x picaxe 08 development board, http://www.kitronik.co.uk/index.php/products/project-kits/programmable-pic-kits/kitronik-programmable-pic-kits/8-pin-pic-development-and-project-boards/ (part 2126)  picture 2
Some solder
A flat head screwdriver
A soldering iron
3x  1.5V AA baterries

Picaxe Programmming Editor http://www.rev-ed.co.uk/picaxe/ > Software

If you have this stuff then you can move on to the next step
try doing this with lots of different colors
&nbsp;<br> Neat idea to keep kids entertained on a car journey.&nbsp; It would be nice to extend the LED and button wires and put this in a proper box.&nbsp; On the 08m you can also use the serial out pin as a normal output so you could extend the code and add a blue LED as well.<br> <br> You mention cutting and pasting the code but you appear not to have put it in, or have I just missed it?<br>
Thanks AndyGadget. I guess you could do all those. Sorry I must have forgotten to put up the code I will so asap.
was this your idea or can you buy this ame as a kit???
As far as I know you can't buy it as a kit. But if you look hard I am sure someone has got a kit for it. If not, it's quite simple to make your own.
Nice idea for a game.
Thanks, sometimes I just get ideas poping into my brain.
