Alright, so it's been a while since I've taken an electronics course, can some one translate that diagram for me? I'm a Network Engineer so I have some REMOTE technical abilities, all help is helpful.

Okay, let me try again...

I'm a complete dumbass that found this site through Google. I'm not completely stupid with math and electronics so don't give up hope that I won't get it, if someone would take the 15 minutes to explain this to the complete retard that I really am, I would be willing to exchange sexual favors.

Deal?

Being that most of the advice you recieve on this site will be from guys...That is a little awkward. I was hoping my demanding attitude would get answers!

Ok the first diagram is fine, though it doesn't need the switched power NC in the relays. It could be either 120v controlled or 12 volt controlled. It doesn't need a holding circuit and you wouldn't want one in terms of simplicity so a diy could build the circuit.. It is a simple single pole toggle 'on' 'off' switch. The first person to turn a switch 'ON' disables his opponents power via the switched power energizing the opponents relay solenoid and opening both NC contacts in the relay. As long as the switch is 'on' his opponents relay has open contacts killing all power to his switch. When he toggles off the opponent will have power back.

So if you don't like that one how about this one......120/24 volt controlled by a DPST switch

Stubbie i like that second plan better than my drawing with SPDT set up.

make it harder for someone else try to overide it.

i dont know if you can add delay feature when someone hit the switch it will lock in that postion for few seconds after someone slam the mushroom head button.

what ya think ??

Merci, Marc

Yes, I think a delay feature would work but it complicates what most DIYers would be comfortable trying to build. I would prefer to use the low voltage control of the second schematic over the first one I posted. Either could be easily built at home for about 50 bucks. If you had the transformers then it's very inexpensive.
