Buttons without clicking animation

I'm making a battleship game, and I need to make a grid where the user can click to select where their ships are supposed to be and fire at enemy ships. Basically I need a button for each cell in the grid but not a button where it has the clicking animation, just a flat cell that puts a dot in the cell where the user clicked. Alternatively, I could have put a boundary on each cell and checked for a click in that boundary, but in an 8x8 grid, that is 64 boundaries to set. Sorry if that was hard to understand. If you don't understand just ask.
