Help Adding 2 word choice

I am working on this program for class. I have it working fine, but when I try to add a game with 2 words it will only add the first word. What am I missing?

If you want to gather more then one word you need to use getline instead of cin.
More info: http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/string/string/getline/

Example:
1
2
3
4
	cout << "Please, enter your full name: ";
	cin.ignore(80, '\n');
	getline(std::cin, name);
	cout << "Hello, " << name << "!\n";


If you use cin before getline you will need the cin.ignore, if you don't, like in this example, it is not necessary.
Thanks Joe. I just found that as well and got it working :)
