I am not quite sure what the lesson's intent was. Please can someone help explain?
Earlier we made a for loop for 4 guesses, but at lesson 16, we wanted to 'game over' after the 3rd, so here I added when turn equals 3, it prints game over. however, after that, user can still make the 4th guess. What was the instructor's intent here? I added a break after printing 'game over', not sure if this is right, or should I change the range(4) to range (3) in the 'turn' for loop.?
