    This is my final code.. Just one problem when the blank row.. T.T How to fix it..
    when the row is empty it should not be counted anymore T.T help help any solutions..

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main ()
    {
    
    
            char ans;
    
        do{
            int rows[] = { 3, 5, 7};
            int i, j;
            int player =1;
            int rowChosen, sticksChosen;
            int sum;
    
    
    
            printf("\n\n\t\t\WELCOME TO GAME OF NIM\t\t\t\t\n\n");
            printf("\t\tBy:Ervin And Orven\t\t\t\t\n\n\n\n");
    
            sum=rows[0]+rows[1]+rows[2];
    
            while(sum>0)
            {
    
            for(i = 0; i < 3; i++)
                {
                    printf("\nRow %d:", i+1);
    
                    for(j = 0; j < rows[i] ; j++)

    Maybe a test before printing the row number?

    Code:
           if(rows[i])     //new
              printf("\nRow %d:", i+1);

    The if(rows[i]) should be on line 27

    From post #46, above:

    Code:
            for(i = 0; i < 3; i++)
              {
                  if(rows[i]) {
                       printf("\nRow %d:", i+1);
                       for(j = 0; j < rows[i] ; j++)
                       {
                            printf("\t|");
                       }
     
                       printf("\n");
                   } //end of new if statement
                }

    NO!

    You will delete the lines 4 - 8 from your post reply #52. (Not line 52, POST reply #52. In your code.

    Then you will add the lines I marked in red above, just as they are in my post, right into your outer for loop, just like I have it.

    Not above the first for loop, but BETWEEN the two for loops.

    Enter row: 1
    Opps Row 1 have no more sticks anymore, please try again.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main ()
    {
    
            char ans;
    
        do{
    
            int rows[] = { 3, 5, 7};
            int i, j;
            int player =1;
            int rowChosen, sticksChosen;
            int sum;
    
            printf("\n\n");
            printf("\t\t******************************\t");
            printf("\n\t\t****WELCOME TO GAME OF NIM****\t\t\n");
            printf("\t\tErvin Ardiente & Orven Dumasig\t\n");
            printf("\t\t******************************\t\n\n");
    
            sum=rows[0]+rows[1]+rows[2];

    Solution...

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    #define ARRAY_SIZE 3
    
    
    int MyArray[ARRAY_SIZE] = { 2, 4, 6};
    int print()
    {
        int result=0;
        int i,j;
        for(i=0;i<ARRAY_SIZE;i++) {
            printf("Row %d:", i+1);
            for(j=0;j<MyArray[i];j++) {
                printf(" |");
            }
            printf("\n"); fflush(stdout);
        }
        return 0;
    }
    int sum()
    {
        int result=0;
        int i;
        for(i=0;i<ARRAY_SIZE;i++) {
            printf("MyArray[ %d ] = %d\n", i, MyArray[i]);
            result += MyArray[i];
        }
        return result;
    }
    
    
    main()
    {
        int row, sticks;
        int player=2;
        while(sum() != 0) {
            player = (player == 1) ? 2: 1;
            print();
    
    
            printf("\nPlayer %d plays\n", player);
    
    
            printf("row:"); fflush(stdout);
            scanf("%d", &row);
            printf("sticks:"); fflush(stdout);
            scanf("%d", &sticks);
    
    
            if( (row <= 0) || (row > ARRAY_SIZE) ) {
                printf("ERROR: row %d is invalid\n", row);
                player = (player == 1) ? 2: 1;
                continue;
            }
    
    
            row -= 1;
    
    
            if ( (sticks==0) || (MyArray[row] < sticks) ) {
                printf("ERROR: sticks %d is invalid\n", sticks);
                player = (player == 1) ? 2: 1;
                continue;
            }
    
    
            MyArray[row] -= sticks;
        }
        printf("Player %d Lost\n", player); 
    
    
    }

            if( (row <= 0) || (row > ARRAY_SIZE) ) {
                printf("ERROR: row %d is invalid\n", row);
                player = (player == 1) ? 2: 1;
                continue;
            }
    
    
            row -= 1;
    
    
            if ( (sticks==0) || (MyArray[row] < sticks) ) {
                printf("ERROR: sticks %d is invalid\n", sticks);
                player = (player == 1) ? 2: 1;
                continue;
            }
    
    
            MyArray[row] -= sticks;
        }
        printf("Player %d Lost\n", player); 
    
    
    }
    This code is actually the same as mine and it make me so confuse.

    what I'm trying to say is: For example row1: has no sticks anymore.
    if the user will choose the row 1 it will print error cause theirs no more sticks in it.

    like this:

    Row1: I I I
    Row2:
    Row3: I I I I I I I

    Enter a row: 2
    Opps!, that row has no sticsk anymore please try again:
    Enter a row: 3
    How many sticks to remove:

    Thats what i'm trying to code..
