Restarting Phrase Hunters

Hello All,

I'm working on the unit three project and I'm having a hard time restarting the game. I try and clear self. guesses list, which works somewhat. It clears the board so the letters are no longer present but that somehow shifts the underscores so that when typing in the correct word it does not complete. In addition, the word is the same as in the last game.

I feel like I need to reset the class instance, but I don't know how. Can someone provide direction on how to make this adjustment,

My code: https://w.trhou.se/wiwd9fvyv0

On line 70, you probably intended to call the method self.guesses.clear(), but the parentheses are missing.

But you won't need it, since a reset will be best done by repeating what the __init__ method did. So you could perform those same steps again, or just replace all the "yes" code (other than the message) with a call to self.__init__().
