The game of Pig is a simple two player dice game in which the first player to reach 100 or more points wins. Players take turns. On each turn a player rolls a six-sided die. After each roll, If the player rolls a 2-6 then he can either: ROLL AGAIN or HOLD. At this point the sum of all rolls made this turn is added to the player's total score and it becomes the other player's turn. If the player rolls a 1 then the player loses his turn. He gets no new points and it becomes the opponent's turn.If a player reaches 100 or more points after holding then the player wins. Write a program that plays the game of Pig, where one player is a human and the other is the computer. Allow the human to input r' (or R') to roll again or h' (or H') to hold. The computer program should play according to the following rule: Keep rolling on the computer's turn until it has accumulated 20 or more points, then hold. Of course, if the computer wins or rolls a 1 then the turn ends immediately. Allow the human to roll first. So here is my code:
// this game is played with a six sided die, on each player's turn he may roll
// until he gets a 1 from the die, at which point, all points accumulated to
// that point are wiped, he may hold and add the accumulation to his score at
// any time.

[Read the FAQ and learn to format your code properly for posting - Zahlman] I'm having problems with the Hold. Whenever I input h or H as the answer, it outputs a very high number repeatedly and wont stop. Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong?!?! [Edited by - Zahlman on April 3, 2010 10:53:26 AM]

This loop will never terminate...

while (continue_game = 1);

##### Share on other sites
Neither will this one, if it's ever entered:
//If player decides to holdwhile (ans == 'H' || ans == 'h'){humanTotalScore += accumulatedScore;cout << "Your score is " << humanTotalScore << endl;}

Notice that `ans' doesn't change value inside the loop, so if the condition was true the first time around, it will always be true.
