your else is not in line with (with)

import random

make a list of words

words = [ 'blue', 'green', 'black', 'bean', 'sean', 'yellow', 'white', 'purple', 'melon', 'lemon', ]

while True: start = input("Press enter/return to start, or enter Q to quit") if start.lower() != 'q': break

secret_word = random.choice(words) bad_guesses = [] good_guesses = []

while len(bad_guesses) < 8 and len(good_guesses) != len(list(secret_word)): #draw space for letter in secret_word: if letter in good_guesses: print(letter, end ='') else: print('_', end ='')

    print('')
    print('Strikes: {}/8.'.format(len(bad_guesses)))
    print('')

    guess = input("Guess the secret words: ").lower()
    if len(guess) != 1:
        print("You can only guess 1 word")
        continue
    elif guess in bad_guesses or guess in good_guesses:
        print("You can only guess the letter one time")
        continue
    elif not guess.isalpha():
        print("You can only guess the letter in alphabet order")
        continue

    if guess in secret_word:
        good_guesses.append(guess)
        if len(good_guesses) == len(list(secret_word)):
            print("You win the game! My word was {}".format(secret_word))
            break
    else:
        bad_guesses.append(guess)

else: print("You didn't get it!")

@Hinh Phan, you have the right code the only thing you need to do is check your list again you will notice that there is something missing on purple(,)melon(,)and lemon(,) hopefully this helps

That's help. The code run. But the (end string doesn't seem work) If it is right, should be print for instance every time guessing the right letter e_ _a __n And when all the letters are guessed, the loop doesn't break.
