Machine Features: 
This is a 7x5 Connect 4 utilizing falling concrete powder (because it doesn't look like sand and gravel) Fully features win detection, tie detection, turn-detection, Anti-spamming (within reason), and all other requirements for the build. Looks half-way decent too. Additionally sand cleared from the board will be sorted into chest arrays enabling replacement of the sand in the unlikely event it is started in a survival world. V.0.2 Changes: - (Actually) Improved spam prevention -Fixed many other bugs
How To Use: 
Welcome to Ol' MJ's Connect 4. Start by getting a friend and stick them at one side of the glass while your on the other side. Start by pressing "Start Game" and one side will start with their turn which is indicated by the ceiling lighting up. That side will press the button that co-responds to which column they want the sand in. The lamps will switch and the other player will have the ability to do the same. Keep going until one person has 4 of their pieces connecting diagonally, horizontally, or vertically which is indicated by the "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" light behind each player. In the event of filling the board and causing a tie the board will automatically reset itself so you can continue duking it out until you find a connect 4 master mind. If you require shaving mid way through a connect 4 game you are free to press the "Quit Game" button which will clear the board and allow you to exit, freeing your soul away from my contraption. Those mighty enough to win will receive bragging rights because we have run out of chicken dinners.

1. Although you prevented the powders from getting over the top, Both players still switched turns when it happened.
2. Win detect is still broken... I didn't press quit game this time so you can see.

You're almost there! xd
I won't disapprove it this time, just reply here if you think you have fixed everything.

Fully fixed. Helps if I were to finish placing dust on the busses....

I can't speak for other staffies, but personally I think the whole build has still too many ticks.
I also like the whole style~ Its kinda clean. Just the ticks bother me.
(If you want to become Regular-worthy remove some, this won't prevent a rankup though, if the game is working.)
- I leave that to DrCrack :P

Really nice! Everything's working now.
I'll tolerate the delays since it is the first of its kind.
