### Old School C++ guess the number game

It's been a while since I blogged but I've got some old fashioned code I've updated using the latest versions. This is some C++ code for a simple guessing game. You get 10 tries to guess a number between 1 and 100. The game picks the number randomly and tells you if you've guessed to low, to high, or correctly. This is written using the newer C++ 11 standard so you'll notice some weird stuff with the random number generating. I will post some links to this below.
`````` #include <iostream>
#include <random>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
random_device randomDevice;
mt19937 mt(randomDevice());
uniform_real_distribution<double> dist(1.0, 100.0);

int numberOfTries = 0;
int numberToGuess = dist(mt);
int maxNumberOfTries = 10;
int currentGuess = 0;

bool wonGame = false;

cout << "Welcome to guess the number" << endl << endl
<< "Your goal is to guess the number between 1 and 100 in 10 tries or less" << endl << endl;

do
{
cout << endl << "Guess(" << numberOfTries + 1 << "): ";
cin >> currentGuess;
if (!cin.fail() && currentGuess > 0 && currentGuess <= 100 )
{
if (currentGuess == numberToGuess)
{
wonGame = true;
break;
}
else
{
if (currentGuess > numberToGuess)
{
cout << "Too High" << endl;
}
else
{
cout << "Too Low" << endl;
}
numberOfTries++;
}
}
else
{
cin.clear();
cin.ignore();
cout << "Invalid guess" << endl;
continue;
}
} while (numberOfTries < maxNumberOfTries);

if (wonGame)
{
cout << endl << "Congratulations you guessed the secret number: " << numberToGuess << " in " << numberOfTries << " tries." << endl;
}
else
{
cout << endl << "Sorry you didn't guess the secret number: " << numberToGuess << " in 10 tries or less." << endl;
}
}
