    Unhappy Dice game code creating help!

    Hello! Evryone im not really good at java programming so i hope you dont mind with some silly questions!
    So i have to create a java code which imitates dice rollings till rolls up 1 or 6 when comes 1 or 6 the game stops and counts everything togeather. So here is my idea how to create a code but it isnt working well, especially part when have to count everything!

    Thanks everyone!


    import java.util.Random; //java iebuvets nejausi izveletu skaitlju generators

    class kaulins {
    public static void main (String[] args) {
    Random kaulinss = new Random();
    int skaitlis;


    System.out.println("Speles noteikumi - Jus metat kaulinju tik ilgi lidz uzmetat");
    System.out.println("viens vai sesi, kad ir uzmests kads no siem skaitliem spele");
    System.out.println("beidzas un jus iegustat savu rezultatu, jo lielaks rezultats");
    System.out.println("jo labak jums!");

    System.out.println("Lai spele sakas!!!");

    for(int counter=1; counter<=20; counter++){
    skaitlis = 1+kaulinss.nextInt(6);
    System.out.println(skaitlis+" - metiena rezultats");



    if (skaitlis == 6)
    System.exit(0);
    else
    System.out.println("");

    if (skaitlis == 1)
    System.exit(0);
    else
    System.out.println ("");

    String sum;
    System.out.println(sum = skaitlis+skaitlis+"Rezultats kopaa!");


    }


    }
    }


    class rezultats extends kaulins {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    String sum;
    System.out.println(sum = skaitlis+skaitlis + "Rezultats kopaa!");

    }
    }

    1. Use code tags.
    2. Read what System.exit(0) do. It kills the current process that means your application will be quit as soon as it will reach this statement and no further execution of any statement.

    And what are you trying to do with your code? Are these both classes include in your code or only the first one?
    You must study the very basics first.

    Since you need the game to run until something specific happens (you roll a 1 or a 6), how about using a while loop?
    You can declare a variable to store the most recent dice roll, and base the while loop off from that. For counting everything that was rolled, keep track by adding this variable you created for most recent roll and add it to a variable for total rolls.

    Something like, totalRolls += mostRecent;

    Also, System.exit(0) ends your program, not just your dice game. You wont need that at all.
    You'll need to spend some time puzzling out the logic inside your while loop.
