    Hi,
    Im a computing student and need help with some pseudocode. The
    following is what I have got so far...

    SET point_value = 10
    SET suit_value = Hearts
    SET point_valueA = suit_valueA = guess_count = game_count = = 0
    REPEAT
    OUTPUT message to operator for suit_valueA
    GET suit_valueA
    IF suit_valueA == suit_value THEN
    OUTPUT message indicates successful guess
    ELSE
    OUTPUT message indicates incorrect guess
    END IF
    UNTIL suit_valueA == suit_value
    REPEAT
    OUTPUT message to operator for point_valueA
    GET point_valueA
    IF point_valueA == point_value THEN
    OUTPUT messages indicates successful guess
    ELSE
    IF point_valueA < point_value THEN
    OUTPUT message indicates guess to low
    ELSE
    OUTPUT message indicates guess to high
    END IF
    END IF
    UNTIL point_valueA == point_value

    The code is for a game which goes by the following rules...

    1) Imagine computer randomly selects a card from a pack of cards.
    2) The first player must guess the suit then its value
    3) After each guess for the suit a message will display whether the
    player was correct or not.
    4) After each guess for the value a message will display whether the
    player was correct, too high or too low.
    5) The individual game ends when a player has correctly identfied the
    card, the next player is now given a new card.
    6) On completing 3 games each the average number of guesses to
    correctly identify the card should be displayed for each player.
    7) The game should be restricted to three players.

    So basically I have completed the first 4 steps but need help editing
    my code to include rules 5, 6 and 7.

    Any help at all would be very much appreciated.

    Many Thanks,

    Rob.

    I don't know what your instructions are. But since you are posting to C++,
    I presume the end result will be a C++ program. I would much prefer writing
    the program to writing the pseudocode. I would have a class called player
    and it would keep score and divulge the score when asked. It would have a
    command called play which has a parameter describing the card. There would
    be three player objects and each player would receive three calls on
    play().

    Main would create the objects, select the cards, issue the play function,
    and collect and display statistics at the end of the program.

    Unfortunately im not going to be programming in C++ so it's just the
    pseudocode I need help with. Thanks for your time though.
