Electronics memory games like Simon can be a lot of fun. But it is even more fun if you add a second player and make it a competition. So I designed a two player version of the game that runs on Arduino. This lets you play Simon head to head.

To make it even more interesting, I added jacks that allow you to use external switches. This lets you use almost anything as a switch to play the sequence. All it has to do is connect the signal wire to ground. You can use large push button switches. You can hook up piezo vibration sensors to a drum set and play Simon with a drum set. You could even wire it up to the switches on a "Guitar Hero" style guitar. The choice is up to you.

Step 1: Watch the Video

Here is a video walkthrough of the project.

<p>can you writ the cone in the comment because wen I open it this happen</p>
<p>wite the code*</p>
<p>The program included in the instructions has button and ledpin arrays identified as boolean functions when they need to be int functions. After that the code works great.</p>
<p>Great project... and fun...</p><p>Thank you</p>
<p>That is great - I'm going to make one of these. Could you give me details of how I would connect a speaker or similar so that it also produced various sounds depending on which button was presses? </p>
Here is another example that you can look at<br>https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Octo-Simon-Game/<br>
<p>That looks like so much fun, and I love all that you can hook it up to other things!</p>
