Dice roll game RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I am trying to create a dice roll simulator.

    With the code below how do I:

    1. If the user rolls a 6 that number is not added to the sum but they are allowed to roll twice, adding the sum of those die to the total sum.

    2. At the end, print the number of rolls and total sum of all the rolls

    using System;

    namespace EnLoop
        class MainClass
            public static void Main(string[] args)
                Console.WriteLine("How many die would you like to throw?");
                string numberofThrowsstring = Console.ReadLine();
                Console.WriteLine("Nice, that makes " + 
    numberofThrowsstring  +" throws.");


    int numberofThrows int.Parse(
    numberofThrowsstring);                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               );

    Random rnd newRandom();

    int sum=0;

    numberofThrows 0)

    int randomRoll rnd.Next(1,7);
    if (randomRoll == 6)

    Console.WriteLine("You rolled a 6, you get to roll the die two times.");

    sum sum randomRoll;
    Console.WriteLine("You have rolled "+randomRoll+" and the sum is now: "+sum);

    numberofThrows numberofThrows 1;

  • Unless I'm missing the point here, the net effect of rolling a 6 is that you get 2 extra throws.  So, just add 2 to numberofThrows.

  • Hi Manda_555,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, the code you provided confused me. How do you get the number? Input it by yourself or generate it randomly? Why do you use both of them?

    I modify the code via generating random number. I use for loop to generate the number in 100 times.

      public static void Main(string[] args)
                int sum = 0;
                Random rnd = new Random();
                for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
                    Console.WriteLine("Roll the die");
                    //Console.WriteLine("Nice, that makes " + numberofThrowsstring + " throws.");
                    int randomRoll = rnd.Next(1, 7);
                    if (randomRoll == 6)
                        Console.WriteLine("You rolled a 6, you get to roll the die two times.");
                        goto Continue;
                        sum = sum + randomRoll;
                        Console.WriteLine("You have rolled " + randomRoll + " and the sum is now: " + sum);
