Arduino LCD game: Nicomachus

Once more Emmanuel Turner has ported another game to work with an Arduino and our LCD Keypad Shield. In this instalment he brings us the classic game “Nicomachus”.

It’s a classic that dates back to 90AD and adapted from the classic book of games by David Ahl. Review the video for a demonstration:

 

Once again – well done Emmanuel. For more information including the sketch and other interesting Arduino projects, visit Emmanuel’s siteAnd for more, we’re on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
