Hi there,

In Game.java it is saying message doesn't exist. Do you mean misses?

And in Prompter.java you've declared the error to be iae then tried to access it with ian. Change that to iae and that error will disappear.

[EDIT]Yes, those two changes make your code work.

Hey Ohhh... yes thank you very much. fat fingers :).
In Game.java it saying cannot find symbol.

I'll check your code - give me a minute.

Yes - change message to misses. :+1:

No problem. All sorted now?
