I’ve put the for loop at the end of a code and it appears that there is a difference in an output in comparison to putting for loop above “if guess_row…” In the example above output doesn’t return the board with “Xs” - places that have been already guessed. It makes sense to me there should be a difference but I don’t know what really makes it.

Gratefull to hear some sugestions! Best

the comment gives a good hint about the place of the for loop:

``````# Everything from here on should be in your for loop
# don't forget to properly indent!
``````

but also think, what code should all be in the for loop? You want to give the user multiple guesses and handle each guess
