I would second Terry's advice here. If a low barrier and
simplicity are what you want, then i would suggest tkinter

you get ultimate control, for the small price of your

or it resides in a nudist colony (Hey, don't forget your
"sitting towel"!), which obviously is not true in either
case. ;-) Try this instead:

                 board[(r,c)] = lbl

There. And now, and in more ways than one, we have defined some
