How do I generate a random int number in C#?

Answer

The Random class is used to create random numbers. (Pseudo-random that is of course.).

Example:

Random rnd = new Random();
int month = rnd.Next(1, 13); // creates a number between 1 and 12
int dice = rnd.Next(1, 7);   // creates a number between 1 and 6
int card = rnd.Next(52);     // creates a number between 0 and 51

If you are going to create more than one random number, you should keep the Random instance and reuse it. If you create new instances too close in time, they will produce the same series of random numbers as the random generator is seeded from the system clock.
