So show us what you have so far and we can then make some suggestions for how to continue.

Okay... which parts do you understand and not understand?
1) get user entry from console
2) compare entry to valid possibilities
3) do/while loop
4) store info in array
5) output details for each round
If you break it down into its component pieces of logic, it's not that daunting. At least you can identify the parts you understand and which you need to work on.

I have been trying to fool around with making yourInput a string but so far I get errors that you can't have int data type and string to compare them.

Keith Rainey wrote:Do you understand how to access the elements of arrays to set and retrieve values?
I have used single arrays that are really small, everything was already set and I just retrieve the values from the position in the array. The two dimensional array is confusing to me. Will the user's input be stored into the array as the program runs?
Like as the user keeps playing after every game will it store the value in the array?
