A break can't be placed outside a loop.
What does a break do?
Do you agree that your break is outside of any loop?
What marks the end of a loop?
We can use the command break to get out of a for loop. So here is my answer and it works fine:
# Print (turn + 1) here!
for turn in range(4):
print "Turn", turn + 1
if turn == 3:
print "Game Over"
before your for loop do you have to set turn = 0??? How does it know what to add +1 to ...
If someone could explain that .. I'd be very grateful.
Update: never mind ... I realized that turn was declared when the for loop was created.
