Hey guys. First and foremost, I'm a total noob so any and all advice is accepted. Secondly I'm trying to make basic games to start getting the hang of programming. I made a very basic dice game that simulates 20 rolls for a person while adding up the totals and displaying the running total after each roll. If the total was >= to 80 after the 20 rolls you win the game. What I'm trying to do now is create a two person, dice version of the game Chicago.
In the game there are eleven rounds numbered 2 - 12. In each round the player tries to roll and score the number of the round, the numbers being the combinations possible with 2 dice. If a player throws the correct number for that round they score 1 point. If they throw any other number they donít score. The highest total after 11 rounds wins the game
So I was thinking I would use the current Die class I have from my previous dice game to actually create two six sided die. Also, I wanted to have the game alternate between player 1 and player 2 and display each playerís roll values, their score for that round, and the running total after each round. It would be awesome if anybody could help me with the code for the actual game. Of course I don't want anybody to just give me the code with no explanation as that wouldn't help me progress at all, but as I said I'm a total noob so providing code and explanation would be greatly appreciated. Or if you could just provide could I could break it down through the Java API and figure it out myself.. PLEASE HELP!
