The program tells me the max number is 12 because the max # of sides is 6. It gets down to the user_guess variable which pops you up to the get_user_guess() function which prompts the question. You input the response and it stores the variable...here is where I need help...how does the program pop you back into the roll_dice(6) function with your newly stored variable (user_guess) because my program does nothing after it asks.
#imported to make 'random dice rolls' possible from random import randint #imported to simluate the time that it takes to roll dice from time import sleep def get_user_guess(): user_guess = int(raw_input("What is your guess?: ")) return user_guess def roll_dice(number_of_sides): first_roll = randint(1, number_of_sides) second_roll = randint(1, number_of_sides) max_val = number_of_sides * 2 print "The Max value is: " + str(max_val) sleep(1) user_guess = get_user_guess() if user_guess > max_val: print "The number that you have chosen is invalid. Program now exiting..." return else: print "Rolling..." sleep(2) print "The first value is: %d" % (first_roll) sleep(1) print str("The second value is: %d" % (second_roll)) sleep(1) total_roll = first_roll + second_roll print total_roll print "Result..." sleep(1) if user_guess > total_roll: print "Congradulations! You've won!" else: print "You lose." roll_dice(6)
