           String type = "";
           String reply = "yes";
           int error = 0;
     
           System.out.println(words[roll]);
     
        while (!reply.equalsIgnoreCase("no")){
        	if (!reply.equalsIgnoreCase("yes"))
        		System.out.println("Yes and No are the only acceptable answers");
     
        	else {

    The timer will time the game and at the end of the time, the game should stop too and it will display the score. I'm only asking about the timer

    time the game
    Are you trying to get the duration of the game? The System class has a method that returns the current time. Get the time at the start and the time at the end and subtract to get the duration.

    What class and methods are you trying to use? You can look in the API doc to see what package the class is in so that you know what import statement you need.
