# while loop end but game() wont start again

```import random

secret_number = random.randint(1, 20)
guesses = []

def game():
while len(guesses) < 5:
print(secret_number)
print(guesses)
try:
guess = int(input("Guess Number Between 1 to 20: "))
except ValueError:
continue
else:
if guess == secret_number:
print("Well done you got it...")
break
elif guess > secret_number:
print("number little higher")
elif guess < secret_number:
print("number little lower")
guesses.append(guess)

else:
print(guesses)
play_again = input("do you wanna play agan Y/n: ")
if play_again.lower() != 'n':
game()

else:
print("bye bye")
game()
```

in the end yes or no is not working

Could you please format your code with "```" (look in the Markdwon Cheatsheet) The lines before the "```" must be free it is a pain to format Python code :) Hi syalih

If you put the guesses list inside the function game it will work.

```import random

secret_number = random.randint(1, 20)

def game():
guesses = [] # set guesses here
while len(guesses) < 5:
print(secret_number)
print(guesses)
try:
guess = int(input("Guess Number Between 1 to 20: "))
except ValueError:
continue
else:
if guess == secret_number:
print("Well done you got it...")
break
elif guess > secret_number:
print("number little higher")
elif guess < secret_number:
print("number little lower")
guesses.append(guess)

else:
print(guesses)
play_again = input("do you wanna play agan Y/n: ")
if play_again.lower() != 'n':
# when you call the function game() length of guesses is still 5 so the else statement gets executed
game()

else:
print("bye bye")
game()
```

Thanks :)
