Syntax error for "break"

below is my code, exactly the same as Kenneth's, but it's not working...

======================================== import random

generate a random number bettween 1 and 10

secret_num = random.randint(1,10)

def game(): while True: #get a number guess from the player guess = int(input("Guess a number between 1 and 10"))

    #compare guess to secret number
    if guess == secret_num:
        print("You got it! the number was {}".format(secret_num)
        break
    else:
        print("nope, that's not it")

game()

treehouse:~/workspace$ python number_game.py
File "number_game.py", line 14
break
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Can someone tell me why?

Looks like your missing a closing bracket. Try:

print("You got it! the number was {}").format(secret_num)

You need a second parentheses at the end of the print command to close it.
