Ending a simple loop This is really pre-first problem set. The sample exercise is : Write a program that has a user guess your name, but they only get 3 chances to do so until the program quits. I want to make a simple loop, but can't find a way to end the 'NOPE' branch without printing 'good guess' as well. Suggestions? Thanx. name = 'Monty' guess = "" i = 0 while guess != name : if i < 3: i = i + 1 guess = raw_input('Guess my name: ') else: print 'NOPE' print 'good guess'

Consider: While = looping construct, If = decision construct. Currently you have the roles reversed. Try approaching from the angle that the While loop is going to do the iteration, and the if else construct will handle the logic to break the loop (i = 4)

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed. Your suggestion gives me a useful way to conceptualize the problem.
