Hi Fabian,

Thanks for writing. My apologies, we don't have the teacher's Workspaces available. I may recommend rewatching the videos to compare your code against theirs. This review is a great opportunity to make sure new concepts are solidified. Good luck!

this is very annoying. I just want to see what is inside the isHit method. How do I know which video to go back to?

Is this the part you're looking for, @RichardWilliams5?

    public boolean promptForGuess() {
        Scanner scanner = new Scanner(System.in);
        boolean isHit = false;
        boolean isAcceptable = false;

        do {
            System.out.print("Enter a letter:  ");
            String guessInput = scanner.nextLine();
            try {
                isHit = game.applyGuess(guessInput);
                isAcceptable = true;
            } catch(IllegalArgumentException iae) {
                System.out.printf("%s. Please try again. %n",

        } while(! isAcceptable);
        return isHit;
