Excellent work Peter!

You know there are dedicated Raspberry Pi header pin breakout boards available which would make that veroboard unnecessary ...

Also, can we have a less robotic voice than the Antfreeze one, otherwise, the system works really well!

Does it handle tap-out/ surrender function? (Not that anyone would want to use that, right?)

I couldn't see a break out connector or board that went to flying wires and I had the vero board and sockets so it was convenient.
My son-in-law is doing the audio files I have asked for plain speech and slightly robotic and am considering a voice changeover switch.
Tapping out on the roboteers switch was going to be included but I seem to have forgotten it so may well get added.

It did have a voice but I didn't have all the audio files at that stage.
Here it is with the new audio files still need to add an alternate voice but have added in the tap out function.

Excellent, that voice is much better than the Antfreeze one (Sorry John), looks great! Now with added tap-out-ability.
