How to make a loop that loops a specific number of times ?       Author Message

Hello, this is my first post.
I have a school project where I have to make a rock paper scissors assignment that lets the player play the game a specific number of times by entering how many points they want to play to against a computer.
Currently the program runs perfectly fine but when the player plays the game the game just keeps looping forever.
Pls help..

Here is the code I currently have:

var randNum : int
var myNum : int
var playagain : char
var playername : string
var score : int

randNum := Rand.Int (1, 3)

const ROCK : int := 1
const PAPER : int := 2
const SCISSORS : int := 3

put "Hello Player! What's your name?"
get playername
put "Welcome ", playername, "! How many points do you want to play to?"
get score

delay (100)
delay (3500)
cls

loop

put "Choose:"
put ""
put " 1. ROCK"
put " 2. PAPER"
put " 3. SCISSORS"

get myNum

if myNum = 1 then
put "YOU CHOSE ROCK"
elsif myNum = 2 then
put "YOU CHOSE PAPER"
elsif myNum = 3 then
put "YOU CHOSE SCISSORS"
end if

if randNum = 1 then
put "COMPUTER CHOSE ROCK"
elsif randNum = 2 then
put "COMPUTER CHOSE PAPER"
elsif randNum = 3 then
put "COMPUTER CHOSE SCISSORS"
end if

if myNum = 1 and randNum = 1 then
put "YOU TIED!"
end if
if myNum = 1 and randNum = 2 then
put "YOU LOSE!"
end if
if myNum = 1 and randNum = 3 then
put "YOU WIN!"
end if

if myNum = 2 and randNum = 1 then
put "YOU WIN!"
end if
if myNum = 2 and randNum = 2 then
put "YOU TIED!"
end if
if myNum = 2 and randNum = 3 then
put "YOU LOSE!"
end if

if myNum = 3 and randNum = 1 then
put "YOU LOSE!"
end if
if myNum = 3 and randNum = 2 then
put "YOU WIN!"
end if
if myNum = 3 and randNum = 3 then
put "YOU TIED!"
end if

end loop
