# Need help on letter refinement

My code is counting my correct guesses as strikes. Also its not showing the letter I already guessed.

import random import os import sys

# make a list of words

words = [ 'pizza', 'chicken', 'rice', 'pancakes', 'lemon', 'melon', 'bacon', 'apples', 'ham', 'cheese', 'hamburgurs', 'grit' ] def clear(): if os.name == 'int': os.system('cls') else: os.system('clear') def draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word): clear()

```print('Strikes: {}/10'.format(len(bad_guesses)))
print('')
print(letter, end=' ')
print('\n\n')

for letter in secret_word:
if letter in good_guesses:
print(letter, end ='')
else:
print('_', end ='')

print('')
```

def get_guess(bad_guesses, good_guesses): while True: guess = input("Guess a letter: ").lower()

```    if len(guess) != 1:
print("You can only guess a single letter!")
elif guess in bad_guesses or guess in good_guesses:
print("You have already guessed that letter!")
elif not guess.isalpha():
print(" You can only guess letters!")
else:
return guess
```

def play(done): clear() secret_word = random.choice(words) bad_guesses =[] good_guesses =[]

```while True:

if guess in secret_word:
good_guesses.append(guess)
found = True
for letter in secret_word:
if letter not in good_guesses:
found = False
if found:
print("You win!")
print("The secret word was {}.".format(secret_word))
done = True
else:
print(" You lost better luck next time")
print("The secret word was {}.".format(secret_word))
done = True

if done:
play_again = input("Would you like to play again? Y/n").lower()
if play_again != "n":
return play(done = False)
else:
sys.exit()
```

def welcome(): start = input("Press enter/return to staet or Q to quit ").lower if start == 'q': print("Bye!") sys.exit else: return True print("Lets begain!")

print("Welcome to letter Guess!")

done= False

while True: clear)() welcome() play(done

Hi Camray, Can you repost/edit it based on the tips in Markdown Cheatsheet so that it will automatically format like it appears in text editors?
