# Dungeon Game : get_locations(), "monster not defined" argh!

```import random
import os
import sys

CELLS = [(0,0),(1,0),(2,0),(3,0),(4,0),
(0,1),(1,1),(2,1),(3,1),(4,1),
(0,2),(1,2),(2,2),(3,2),(4,2),
(0,3),(1,3),(2,3),(3,3),(4,3),
(0,4),(1,4),(2,4),(3,4),(4,4),]

def clear_screen():
if os.name == 'nt':
os.system('cls')
else: os.system('clear')

def get_locations():
random.sample(CELLS,3)
return monster, door, player

def move_player(player, move):
#ascertain current player location
#if move == LEFT, x-1
#if move == RIGHT, x+1
#if move == UP, y-1
#if move == DOWN, y+1
return player

def get_move(player):
move = ["LEFT", "RIGHT", "UP", "DOWN"]
x, y = player
if x == 0:
move.remove("LEFT")
if x == 4:
move.remove("RIGHT")
if y == 0:
move.remove("UP")
if y == 4:
move.remove("DOWN")
return move

monster, door, player  = get_locations()

while True:
print("Welcome to the DUNGEON !")
print("You are currently in room {}".format(player))
print("You can move {}".format(", ".join(get_move(player))))
print("Enter QUIT to quit")

move = input("> ")
move = move.upper()
if move == 'QUIT':
print("I guess you were afraid of the DUNGEON!")
break
```
```    When I put this into python I get the follow error from the shell:
```

Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Program Files\Python36\learningPython\dungeon_game.py", line 44, in <module> monster, door, player = get_locations() File "C:\Program Files\Python36\learningPython\dungeon_game.py", line 18, in get_locations return monster, door, player NameError: name 'monster' is not defined

For the life of me I can't figure out what is wrong ? Could someone please point me in the right direction

You do not have to name the return values, Since `random.sample` returns a list, it will be unpacked at the calling statement. Instead, simply use:
```def get_locations():
For more on `random.sample` see [docs].
