    Question Writing a simplified cards game.

    Hey everyone, I have got this question in an assignment about a simplified SNAP card game. I have spent far too much time on this assignment and I still have not found a solution. Apparently the program should print SNAP and then finish if two identical values of two cards are put one after other.

    The question is as follows:

    Write a program to play a simplified form of the card game 'Snap'. The user inputs a card using a string of two characters e.g. 3D is the 3 of diamonds, JSis the jack of spades. (the suits are H C D and S, the values are 23456789TJQKA). Each card will be input on a line. When two cards of the same value are input one after the other, the program should respond with SNAP, and then finish.
    e.g. Type in your cards:
    3S
    KH
    AH
    7C
    7S
    SNAP

    This is what I have done so far, but I am still stuck and the program is not working as I want it to. I am not sure if I am taking the right steps or not. I want to pick out the first value from card1 and compare it with second value of the card 2 and see if they match so the programm can print out SNAP at the End. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    
    char card1[3],char card2[3];
    
    
    int main() {
    	printf("Type in card1: ");
    	scanf("%s", card1);
    	printf("Type in card2: ");
    	scanf("%s", card2);
    	strcmp(card1[1],card2[1]);
    }

    You've got a thread on this already
    Help Needed please!!

    Read it, respond to it.
    We're not going to spoon-feed you the answer, no matter how many times you start a new thread.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
