Hi James! You have two consecutive else clauses:

else:

    if guess == secret_num:
        print("You got it! My number was {}".format(secret_num))
        break
    elif guess < secret_num:
        print("My number is higher than {}".format(guess))
    else:
        print("That's not it!")
    guesses.append(guess)
else:
    print("You didn't get it! My number was {}".format(secret_num))

Let me know if you need anymore help :)
