    Default Repeating a game

    I am looking to repeat this game, and I'm unsure as to how to go about it. Does anyone want to give me suggestions? I am unsure as to how to make the appropriate loop to do so.

     
    import java.util.Random;
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
     
    class FunGame
    {
    	/*@param this is the main method
    	 * 
    	 */
        public static void main(String [] args)
        {
            Random ran = new Random();
            Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in);
            /*@ return this is returning a string to be used later on in the game.
             * 
             */
            String a = "Computer chose Rock";
            String b = "Computer chose Paper";
            String c = "Computer chose Scissors";
    		String e = "Computer chose Lizard";
    		String f = "Computer chose Spock";
    		// Initialize variables
            int hs = 0;
            int cs = 0;
            int d = 0;
     
     
     
            // Created string to use for the game
            String choice, rock, paper, scissors, lizard, spock;
            int comp;
            /* Created a while loop that prints out the appropriate current score and 
             * basic score for each game played.
             */
            while(hs < 5 && cs < 5)
            {
    			comp = ran.nextInt(5);
    			/* For this assignment, I am using shorthand p to venture new ways
    			 * into learning how to implement different things into Java.
    			 */
     
    			p("\nRock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock . . . Go!\n");
    	    	p("Current score: \nYou = " + hs + "\nComputer = " + cs + "\nDraws = " + d + "\n\n");
    			choice = s.nextLine();
                /* In my example, rock is 0, paper 1, scissors 2 , lizard 3, and spock 4
                 * The if statements are self explanatory so I will include the logic in one piece.
                 * For the first if statement, if the user inputs rock, the computer will randomly 
                 * select an option, and based on that option, the output is printed notifying
                 * the user if they won or not.  For example, if the user selects rock and the random
                 * selection is = 0, which is rock, there is a tie.  This follows through all parts of the game
                 * and is consistent in each section.  IF the random selection is = 1 which is paper, the user loses.
                 */
    			if(choice.equals ("rock"))
    			{
                   	if(comp == 0)

    pretty simple:
    repeat = true;
    do{
      // game here
      repeat = askUser();
    } while(repeat);

    So exactly how can I implement that? I'm really bad with repeating. Although it makes sense to me in some way, I'm not sure exactly how to use this.

    Try working through the tutorial on the use of the loop and ask any questions you have left
