I have made revisions to my program. I gave up on the idea of using functions that return arrays. That was far too complicated for the expected benefit. This latest version compiles and runs correctly with all of the provisions required by the exercise.

What remains is feedback on the efficiency and elegance of the program. What I ask is for constructive comments on how the code for this game could have been written with fewer lines, and making better use of C++ features.

Please bear in mind that I am self-teaching C++ and started in June of this year. This is my first code solving a semi-complex problem. I am not (yet) a C++ code master. (LOL)
