    Help With Dice Game

    Hi, i was working on this for my class and i can't seem to get this to work. I am not quite done yet but i have a few problems. After my rules and game function, i would like it to return to the home screen (call the main) again but it dosen't seem to do that. When i click 1 for the rules it displays the rules then plays the game instead of returing home. Then i the random number dice are not number between 1 to 6. Why ? Thanks




    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <time.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    int Dice (int dice1, int dice2)
    {
    time_t seconds;
    time(&seconds);
    srand((unsigned int) seconds);
    dice1 = rand() % (5 + 1)+1;
    dice2 = rand() % (5 + 1)+1;
    return (dice1, dice2);
    }
    
    int rules()
    { 
        system("cls");
    cout << " The Rules Are Quite Simple. We Roll Two Dice.\n -If Even, Player 1 Gets a Point\n If Odd, Player 2 Gets a Point\n";
    system("Pause");
    int main ();
    }
    
    int game()
    { 
        int times;
        system("cls");
        cout << "How Many Times Would You Like to Roll?";
        cin >> times;
        int Dice (int dice1, int dice2);
        int main ();
    }
    
    
    
    int main()
    
    {
        int key;
    cout << "Menu\n Press 1 for Rules\n Press Any Key to Play\n"  ;
    cin >> key;
    if (key==1)
       {rules();}
       else
       {game();}
    int dice1;
    int dice2 ;   
    cout << "First Dice = " << dice1 <<  endl;
    cout << "Second Dice = " << dice2 << endl;
    
    system("pause");
    
    }

    Calling main is neither necessary nor desirable (it might even be impossible in C++, I don't remember). You just need to put a loop inside main, is all.

    You should also only be calling srand once in a program, so putting it inside your Dice function is a bad idea. Put the call to srand at the start of main so it only gets called once.
