I have to wrote the following code:




and every time I compiled and ran it, it would skip over the input of player 1's name, and go right to player 2. As far as I can see, the two are identical in syntax. Any suggestions?

Basically, when you asked for "how many rounds?", you only read an int. This doesn't read a whole line, it just reads an int token. Later, when you ask for the first player, you read a line. This reads from the current location to the end of the line. The current location is just after the int -- so the first player is the blank string from the end of the int to the carriage return of the line.
