    Default Please help with my new memory board game excercise, been trying for 1 whole week and still can't finish this..:(

    Create an application with following requirements:
    Input the length and width of board game manually.
    Width must be an even number, and the max width must be equal to 40/length. For example: length input is 10, thus the maximum input number for width is 4.
    The maximum size for memory board game (length*width) is 40
    Program will do randomize symbols inside “Memory Board Game” for each square board. There will be only 2 same symbols for each symbol picture.
    User will be ask to guess the location of 2 match symbol inside ‘Memory Board Game’.
    User gets only 10 chances to guess all the match symbols.
    If user guess correctly, the symbols will be opened.
    If user guess wrongly, the chance will be deducted by one.
    If user finish the chance before guessing all the match symbol, show a message of “You Lose”.
    If user able to guess all the match symbols with available chance, show a message of “You Win”
    Show user’s score with following formula:
    Score = chance * grade
    Grade = opened symbols * 10
    By the end of game, prompt user if she/he wants to re-play the game.

    Post the code that has problems, in code tags. (Instructions on the Announcements page) if you need help.
    Explain what the code is supposed to do.
    Explain what the code actually does.
    Include the full text of error messages with your post.

    As it stands your thread says "do my work for me", we would much rather see you finish your work, but are happy to help explain things when you get stuck

    use printlns to print out the values of the variables that control the loops. Perhaps the variables hold unexpected values, or perhaps the wrong variables are being used to control the loops.
    Printlns should help locate the cause of the symptoms
