    Help with Hangman like code

    Hey all,

    I am learning Ruby and I am struggling to fix the issue with the program i am playing with. I cant get it to end after the correct number of misses and i also cant seem to get it to properly enter in the letter when i correctly guess. I spend hours tooling with it, any help or suggestions?
