What arguments need to be passed in a function ?

Hi, Since the variable CELLS is being used within the function get_locations(), why isn't it passed in along with the variable player ? Thanks, Max

CELLS is defined as a global variable. CELLS is accessible to all functions defined within the file dungeon_game.py

Hi Chris, thanks for the prompt reply !

the variable [CELLS] is a "global" variable, which means this variable can be used everywhere in your python program unless the function defined its own [CELLS ] variable
