C# C# Objects Inheritance Throwing Exceptions

Bummer: I entered valid value 2 and got an exception. Not sure what is going on here?

Got stuck with try/catch for a bit, then found out I didn't need those. Compiled the value's, checked forums after "throw(exception)" didn't work, fixed the syntax, now I get "Bummer: I entered valid value 2 and got an exception."

NO WHERE here do I see anything that should flag 2. Again to the forums, this exact code has worked for others?

Program.cs
int value = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

    if (value < 0 || value > 20);
      {
        throw new System.Exception();
      }


Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));

The semicolon terminates this line and should be removed:

if (value < 0 || value > 20);
