I am trying to make a game.

Hello and good day. I'm trying to make a "guess the number" game but have a problem. The game works great right now but It's very simple. I'm trying to make it so that I can have a user input a number, and if it is wrong, they can try again using one of their lives. I'm off to a good start so far I think. Problem: How can I make it so that a user can input again if they guess incorrectly? Currently when the user guesses incorrectly, the game is over as I can't figure out how to let the user add another input. Can anyone help me? The code is below...: import random rnum = random.randint(0, 5) guess = int(input()) chances = 0 while chances >= 0: if guess == rnum: print("you got it!") break elif guess != rnum: print("That's not it!") chances = 0+1 print('You have used', chances, 'of your chances.') break continue

Sorry buddy, especially to someone whos been here long enough and knows the same as i. I dont have to conform to what you consider polite, or are you too up your own self to see that? You call it a problem, I dont care. Xavier Christian Im here to help, not to babysit.

Check out this code , it's quite similar to what you are to do, you'll understand it easily:- Parallel Visions :- https://repl.it/@HindBiswas/Riddle-10#main.py

Kind of but not exactly. Look at the parenthesis underneath in my last post, it shows the equivalent equation, just spread out so you can see how it works. You can use either one

So I've done what you said slick, but the code infinitely loops but counts up by 1 each line. Because of the += of course. I’ll keep trying though.

Cool, since this guy just served up the code like a waiter you can take a look. Pay attension to where the input is placed and keep trying. Youre on the right track

You don't have to keep replying and helping of course, but even using his code it doesn't work. Its just an infinite loop. His code is cleaner because of the elif loop. https://code.sololearn.com/cVhmFHW7iGWi/?ref=app

That bottom while loop shouldnt be there. What would really help is an ide with a debugger. You can stop the code wherever you want and single step through it to see exactly how everything is working

Take input inside the loop so that after every guess it will ask for input,change chances=0+1to Chance+=1 sothat its values increases one after every guess And remove that break and continue

Maybe also enter the number of chances used so far into the input, as well as your guess, each time you run it? It's open to cheating of course but where's the fun in that?

Add a variable counter to count your trials. Check if counter is equal or less the desired number of trials if not proceed to check if guess is correct or not. Make sure to increament the counter after each trial. (Don't want to give you the code just try figuring that out)

https://code.sololearn.com/c5nDUEQ92Psv/?ref=app U can check this but I limited the number of guesses to nine if u want ulimited guesses u can set while True for infinite loop and use break statement

I think you should make a fixed number of chanches e.g. > 5 if 1 is used decrement it just e.g > 5-1 ,4 left ,4-1,3 left ,3-1,2 left so on..... if chances == 0 just print("You lost"); :::::::: I hope you understood...
