    something to consider:have the tiles and pieces be metalic.also use a capacitive touch sensor for the arduino (I think it's about $4 for a module that can register 12 different touch pads). it also takes only 1 wire to connect each touchpad (tile). and 2 wires to connect the $4 board to the arduino. if the pieces are also conductive then when a player moves a piece from one tile to another the arduino can register where the piece moved from and where it moved to. so you'll need an array to keep track of what is on what tile. althougha jagged array would work better, since you could actually use that as a map. (create extra rows/columns and designate a 'wall' value between your mapped tiles to prevent players from moving through those areas. your arduino could tell if someone made an...see more »something to consider:have the tiles and pieces be metalic.also use a capacitive touch sensor for the arduino (I think it's about $4 for a module that can register 12 different touch pads). it also takes only 1 wire to connect each touchpad (tile). and 2 wires to connect the $4 board to the arduino. if the pieces are also conductive then when a player moves a piece from one tile to another the arduino can register where the piece moved from and where it moved to. so you'll need an array to keep track of what is on what tile. althougha jagged array would work better, since you could actually use that as a map. (create extra rows/columns and designate a 'wall' value between your mapped tiles to prevent players from moving through those areas. your arduino could tell if someone made an illegal move (too far or to the other side of a wall) by simply checking the value of adjacent cells in the array.just a thought. :-)
