Java Java Objects Delivering the MVP Determining If the Game is Won

Game stopped telling me how many tries are left.

Somehow I broke the part in my code where it requires seven tries before kicking you out. If someone could help me figure out what's wrong that would be awesome.

Nothing in the body of the loop starting on line 17 of "Prompter.java" changes the value of "isAcceptable", so the loop continues indefinitely.

What should be there?

The video has "isAcceptable = true;" on line 21 (line 24 in your version).

Thank you so much! Problem solved!
