This my code: import os import random import sys

mkae a list of words

words = { 'apple', 'banana', 'orange', 'coconut', 'strawberry', 'lime', 'grapefruit', 'lemon', 'kumquat', 'blueberry', 'melon' }

def clear(): if os.name == 'nt': os.system('cls') else: os.system('clear')

def draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word): clear()

print('Stikes: {} /7'.format(len(bad_guesses)))
print('')

for letter in bad_guesses:
    print(letter,end=' ')
print('\n\n')

for letter in secret_word:
    if letter in good_guesses:
        print(letter, end='')
    else:
        print('_', end='')
print('')

def get_guess(bad_guesses, good_guesses): while True: guess = input('Guess a letter: ').lower()

    if len(guess) != 1:
        print('You can only guess a single letter!')
    elif guess in bad_guesses or guess in good_guesses:
        print("You've already guessed that letter!")
    elif not guess.isalpha():
        print("You can only guess letters!")
    else:
        return guess

def play(done): clear() secret_word = random.choice(words) bad_guesses = [] good_guesses = []

while True:
    draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word)
    guess = get_guess(bad_guesses, good_guesses)

    if guess in secret_word:
        good_guesses.append(guess)
        found = True
        for letter in secret_word:
            if letter not in good_guesses:
                found = False
        if found:
            print("You win!")
            print("The secret word was {}".format(secret_word))
            done = True
    else:
        bad_guesses.append(guess)
        if len(bad_guesses) == 7:
            draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word)
            print("You lost")
            print("The secret word was {}".format(secret_word))
            done = True
    if done:
        play_again = input("Play again? Y/n").lower()
        if play_again != 'n':
            return play(done = Flase)
        else:
            sys.exit()

def welcome(): start = input("Press enter/return to start or Q to quit ").lower() if start == 'q': print("Bye!") sys.exit() else: return True

print("Welcome to Letter Guess!")

done = False

while True: clear() welcome() play(done)

It is a little hard to read your code. Please read the Markdown Cheatsheet below the Add an Answer box below. For example, instead of writing this:

name = "Bob" if name == "Bob": print("Hi Bob") else: print("Nice to meet you!")

It is much easier to read it like this:

name = "Bob"
if name == "Bob":
    print("Hi Bob")
else:
    print("Nice to meet you!")
