I am trying to print the board to output after each change. The first change sets the entire board to one symbol. The second change sets the board to alternating symbols. I need the printBoard() method to only print the board, not modify it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The method printBoard() should print the output value rather than the object Board.

Actually, there's nothing particularly wrong with doing it that way...
@Edward: ...providing you implement a toString() method for your Board.

I'm puzzled. Why did you comment out that loop? It looks more like what you want to do.

Agree... But he also try to create a new instance of Board in the printMethod(). So thought he might understand printing output better
