    To save and load, you should write a saved state to a file. Read up about I/O tutorial if you don't know how.
    To make a random number, you would use std::rand. Be sure to read a tutorial on random numbers to accomplish this.

    I think it is a bad idea to start with saving and loading since you have no idea what it is you need to save unless you have a thorough game design.
