    The first and most evident issue: strings content must be compared with equals method ... not with == .

    I can also see { } which are useless (e.g. the { after guesses.add(guess); ) even if this doesn't cause a compilation error.

    I suggest you to always use { } for if/for, etc... even if the body is a single statement.
