Quiz Game Buzzer with LCD 128×64

Build a Quiz Game Buzzer for 3 players  with lights and sounds

I made this device because a good friend ask me for a buzzer for a quiz show.
The scenario is when one of the player presses it’s button faster than the others players, the LED of push button lights up saying the player is in control. It disables the other buzzers until the master releases the game by pressing a button on the main unit and the buzzer is ready for the next action.

Components Required:

  • Atmega 328 pro mini
  • LCD 128×64 (ST7920)
  • 3 x LEDs
  • Speaker
  • 4 x push button
  • 5v power supply
  • 3 x 220Ω and 4 x 2.2 KΩ

Each player has a box, consisted of a push button and one LED. Total 3 boxes for 3 players.
The project can be extended easily for more players as well.

Each time when the push buttons are pressed, the speaker plays a little tune and number of the related box will be displayed on LCD.

Wiring:

LCD 128×64 operates in serial (SPI) mode.
Only 3 digital pins of the Arduino are required to get output on the LCD display.

E Clock –> D13
RW Data, MOSI –> D11
RS Chip Select –> D10


Libraries:

U8glib.h  –  graphic display control library,
OneWire.h   –  single bus protocol
