# Number Guess Issue

#1

``````Hello, I was wondering if someone can help me out. When I run this it comes up asking Guess a number. I input a number and it will just keep on asking.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

'''This is a computer dice game'''

from random import randint
from time import sleep

def get_user_guess():
user_guess = int(raw_input('Guess a number: '))
return get_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_side * 2
print 'The maximum possible value is: ' + str(max_val)
sleep(1)
user_guess = get_user_guess()
if user_guess > max_value:
print 'This guess exceeds the max value'
else:
print 'Rolling...'
sleep(2)
print 'The first value is: %d' % first_roll
sleep(1)
print '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 "you won!"
else:
print"You lost, try again."
roll_dice(6)``````

If you use your

``````def get_user_guess():
user_guess = int(raw_input('Guess a number: '))
return get_user_guess()``````

you are recalling the `get_user_guess`-function again and again and again....
You will want to change the function like

``````def get_user_guess():
user_guess = int(raw_input('Guess a number: '))
return user_guess``````
