    String guessAsString = console.readLine("Enter a letter: ");
    char guess = guessAsString.charAt(0);

    System.out.printf("You have %d tries left to solve: %s\n", 
public class Game{
  public static final int MAX_MISSES = 7;

      if (mHits.indexOf(letter) >= 0) {
        display = letter;
    progress += display;
    return progress;
  public int getRemaningTries() {
    return MAX_MISSES - mMisses.lenght();
public class Hangman {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Enter amazing code here:
      Game game = new Game("treehouse");
