 # reverse number game help

```import random

def isnt_a_num():
print('that isnt a number')

def computer_guess(low,high):
return random.randint(low,high)

def game():
guesses=[]
try:
tries=int(input('how many tries do i have?: '))
except ValueError:
isnt_a_num()
while len(guesses)<tries:
try:
the_answer=int(input('what shall the number be?: '))
low= int(input('what is the minimum?: '))
high= int(input('what is the maximum?: '))

guess= computer_guess(low,high)
except ValueError:
isnt_a_num()
else:
yes_no=input('Was my guess right?: y/n')
if yes_no.lower()=='n':
print('Bummer')
guesses.append(guess)
else:
print('YAY')
yes_no_two= input ('can we play again?: y/n')
if yes_no_two.lower()=='n':
print('okay goodbye then :(')
elif yes_no_two.lower()=='y':
print('YAYYYY')
game()
else:
print('i dont understand')
break

game()
```

my game isnt functioning like i want to, it doesnt keep the same answer i've provided instead does the

```            the_answer=int(input('what shall the number be?: '))

low= int(input('what is the minimum?: '))

high= int(input('what is the maximum?: '))

guess= computer_guess(low,high)
```

again until the amount of tries is up

[MOD: added ```python for matting -cf] If you wish the `the_answer`, `low`, and `high` to remain unchanged during the guessing loop, then those statements need to be move outside of the `while` loop so they are only asked at the beginning of the game.
