    Default Major Help, SAVE ME!! Java Dice Game - Keep Score?

    I have got my code working 100%, I took bits and pieces from other open source java files to help build this up.. but the issue I am having is this.. I need the code to keep track of the scores once the dice is rolled and do so for 2 players and for 5 rounds.. make sense? This is set up to let each player roll 3 dice, highest score wins ... but I can only do this once.. I need up to 5 rounds and all the while the score is kept and it accumulates.. Any help to get me started or what I can do.. Here is the full code I have...

    Dice_Game.java
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
     
    public class Dice_Game
    {
    	public static void main(String args[] )
    	{
    		GUI GCO = new GUI();
    		GCO.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    		GCO.setSize(250,223);
    		GCO.setVisible(true);
    	}
    }

    Start by adding a display to the GUI which show what the round of play is and what the scores are.
