-The Greed Game is something I was told was invented by Rex Bogs. It is a fun party game that is based on "pressing your luck" on five rounds of throwing a die. The points accumulate until the number 2 is cast. Before the die is cast, players have an option of banking the total. If they think the next roll is not a 2, they keep standing. But if it is a 2, they get zero points for that round.+

-Write a solo player app, that will play 5 rounds.  It will roll the die twice.  If a 2 was rolled, the round is over and if the player is standing, they get a zero for the round.  If no 2 was rolled, the sum is added to the round total. The player is asked if they want to bank the round total, or remain standing and try rolling again.  This continues until either a 2 is rolled or the player sits and banks the round total.  Do this again until 5 rounds are played.  Report the grand total for the five rounds.+Write a solo player app, that will play 5 rounds.  It will roll the die twice.  If a 2 was rolled, the round is over and if the player was standing, they get a zero for the round.  If no 2 was rolled, the sum is added to the round total.

 +Below are zipped BlueJ projects to help you get started.  The first is a simple text based version that just has the starter code for asking questions and getting the user responses from the keyboard.  The second is a GUI version that shows dice and has two buttons "SIT" (to bank the round total) or "STAND" to roll the dice again.
