Guess my number game

I am trying to modify a script to when a user selects Q for quit, the game says I have quit and then shows statistics.  Which I believe I have working correctly, however, for some reason I am missing the closing loop or something.  Can anyone see what I missed?

#Clear the Windows command console screen
Clear-Host

#Define variables used in this script
$number = 0       #Keeps track of the game's secret number
$noOfGuesses = 0  #Keeps track of the number of guesses made
$randomNo = New-Object System.Random  #This variable stores a random object
$playGame = "Yes" #Controls when to quit the game
$status = "Play"  #Controls the current round of play
$guess = 0        #Stores the player's guess
$reply = ""       #Stores the player's response when asked to play again

#Display the game's opening screen
Write-Host "`n`n`n`n`t     W E L C O M E   T O   T H E   G U E S S   M Y"
Write-Host "`n`n`n`t`t`tN U M B E R   G A M E"
Write-Host "`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n Press Enter to continue."

#Pause the game until the player presses the Enter key
Read-Host

#Loop until the player decides to quit the game
while ($playGame -ne "No") {

  #Generate the game's random number (between 1 - 100)
  $number = $randomNo.Next(1, 101)

  #Clear the Windows command console screen
  Clear-Host

  #Loop until the player guesses the secret number
  while ($status -ne "Stop") {

    #Prompt the player to guess a number
    while ($guess -eq "") {

      Clear-Host  #Clear the Windows command console screen

      Write-Host

      #Collect the player's guess
      $guess = Read-Host " Enter a number between 1 and 100 or type Q to quit"

    }

    #Keep track of the number of guesses made so far
    $noOfGuesses++
    
    if($guess -eq "Q") { #The player decided to quit this game
        Clear-Host
        Write-Host "`n`n"
        Write-Host " Game is now over, thanks for play Guess My Number!"
        Write-Host "`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n`n"
        Write-Host " Press ENTER to view game stats and quit the game."
        
        Read-Host #Pause for the player
        
        $playGame = "No" #Variable to indicate game is over
        
        Write-Host "`n Game Statistics"
        Write-Host " ------------------------------------------------------------"
        Write-Host "`n You guessed $noOfGuesses times.`n"
        Write-Host " ------------------------------------------------------------"

  #Pause the game until the player presses the Enter key

  #Clear the Windows command console screen

    continue
    
    }
    if ($guess -lt $number) {  #The player's guess was too low

      Clear-Host  #Clear the Windows command console screen
      Write-Host "`n Sorry. Your guess was too low. Press Enter to" `
        "guess again."
      $guess = ""  #Reset the player's guess

My first guess would be to change the 'continue' on line 71 to an 'Exit'.

There is other options to achieve the goal of ending the script, but this is easiest.

you'd have to set $status to "Stop" at line 72 and then some more if statements after the while loop to determine if it was stopped due to guessing the number or stopped due to wanting to quit.

this gives you the option of returning to the welcome screen if you so desire. the first 'Exit' option just closes the script.
