It's black when solved ;-)
Just got it before posting, the middle line is dynamic so if you have 4 white
it's white or 4 black it's black. Got ya :-D
Just have to figure out how to load it and where to display it.

I'v figured it will take 72 bytes of ram to store all 12 lines and keys. I'm 
using 25 at the moment (that includes 3 rows already) , so If I can move the 
row drawing into a generic subroutine I should be able to draw all 12 lines 
on screen without running out of ROM space.
