- And we will make Tobi say, “Yes! Correct answer!” using the say block from the Looks palette.

- We will make the Tobi say out the letters of the name of the logo as a hint to help the user guess the logo correctly.

- If the number of hints is less than 0 then we need to stop the game. Thus, place another if block below the change by block.
- Drag and drop the () < () block into the hexagonal space.
- Place the hint reporter block into first input and 0 in the second.
- Drag and drop the say () for () seconds block into the if arm and write “Game over!” into it.
