# How to make it work

#1

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:
else:
print "You lose."

Hi @trpub,

There are problems with this `if` block ...

``````    if user_guess > total_roll:
The condition should be `user_guess == total_roll`, so that the user wins only by guessing the exact total of the two rolls, rather than also winning if the guess exceeds the total.
For correct spelling,`"Congradulations! You've won!"`, should be changed to `"Congratulations! You've won!"`.
