What is the easiest way to get something from another class in the project and using it in the class you want. For example: currentRoom is an object of Room in the Game class. There is another class called Player... and the player object has to store the currentRoom in the Game class. And... this has to be done in the Player class... its necessary. Whats the easiest way to do this? Even Pseudo code will help as long as the keyword used is in it because chances are, I don't know it. Thanks!!

Write a method in the Game class called getCurrentRoom() that returns a Room. If you are in Player, then you need a reference to the Game class. if you are in some other code, you could write a putCurrentRoom() in the Player class, then do

Room tempRoom = myGame.GetCurrentRoom();
currentPlayer.putCurrentRoom(tempRoom);
