    Hey there, I'm brand new to this forum but it seemed like a helpful place so I figured I might as well ask a question that you all will probably be able to help me out with.

    I want to set up a circuit where there are 5 LED's hooked up in a way that when the circuit is completed (via a pen and a contact plate) one of the 5 LED's turns on at random (or seemingly random). How do I go about this, I'm relatively familiar with circuits but don't know anything about IC's so hopefully this can be accomplished some other way.

    Hope you guys can help!

    Thanks

    One of the ways I've done in the paste is to have a clock toggling a register faster than we can see, and stopping it with a button. Since it is on each choice the same amount of time, and we can't control where it stops, this should be pretty random.

    Other ideas folks?
