I don't get the "turn"-part, First, I can just put it in like that, without prior definition of "turn=0" and just put in "turn+1" for each iteration. (So I guess it just creates the variable with a 0 and puts a 1 on top each time) Then I give the player 4 plays, until I say Game Over - then turn should be on the 4th turn (like the console says). However, why do I put it in like "turn == 3" at the end? This really doesn't make sense to me right now.
I appreciate any explanation!
