# Repeat an if statement inside a function

Hi,

im currently on the Python Basics course and was tasked to do a number game. I went ahead to build it myself, though it took me over an hour compared to what Kenneth did in 8 minutes. Generally, would you say thats good or bad?

I also did some things differently than in his workspace, such as writing a function for playagain. Im getting a little confused though after the else statement in the playagain function. How would I make it that on the else statement it should jump back to the beginning of the function and redo the input request?

import random

def playagain():
playagain = input("Would you like to play again? Write YES or NO: ")
if playagain.lower() == "yes":
game()
elif playagain.lower() == "no":
print("Ok, Bye!!")
else:
print("That isnt yes or no!")

def game():
#generate number between 1 and 10
secret_num = random.randint(1, 10)

guessTrials = 5

while guessTrials >= 1:
#get number guess from player
#If number isnt an integer
try:
guess = int(input("Guess a number between 1 and 10:"))
except ValueError:
print("Not a whole number!")
else:
#Too low/high
if guess < secret_num:
print("TOO LOW")

elif guess > secret_num:
print("TOO HIGH")

#compare guess to secret number
if guess == secret_num:
print("You got it mate!")
playagain()

else:
guessTrials -= 1
print("Thats not it. You have {} tries left".format(guessTrials))

if guessTrials == 0:
print("My number was {}".format(secret_num))

game()

Thanks :)
