What did i do wrong

Edited 6 Years Ago by WaltP: Added CODE Tags

It will not repeat the story between the red { } when i say i want it to.

Well, just look where you put the brackets and what is inside them. What does return 0; do? Do you want that inside your while loop?
Also, I noticed before, in your other question, that these brackets don't seem to belong here. And if it was me, I wouldn't indent quite so far.

{
              cout << "\n**Played a cool game**";
              cout << "\nDo you want to play again? (y/n): ";
              cin >> again;
}

oh dear seems to me that youve included both iostream and string TWICE though thats not messing your code up but its a waste of space and used namespaces when you didn't need to ill get back to in a few

i would just recode it

return 0; is the end of the program and the loop

return 0; will end your program it does not necessarily end the loop since theoretically exiting the program would be part of the loop but try using different control structures like if and else or use switch case if thats easier for you two very very good sites that helped me

You've got the basic idea, you just misplaced your { }s. Reformat your code and you should see the problem.

Thanks for the help guys. It repeats now but not exactly what I wanted.
