### Overview

This is a Python script of the classic game “Hangman”. The word to guess is represented by a row of dashes. If the player guess a letter which exists in the word, the script writes it in all its correct positions.  The player has 10 turns to guess the word. You can easily customize the game by changing the variables.

### Hangman Script

Make sure that you understand what each line does.

#importing the time module
import time

#welcoming the user
name = raw_input("What is your name? ")

print "Hello, " + name, "Time to play hangman!"

print "
"

#wait for 1 second
time.sleep(1)

print "Start guessing..."
time.sleep(0.5)

#here we set the secret
word = "secret"

#creates an variable with an empty value
guesses = ''

#determine the number of turns
turns = 10

# Create a while loop

#check if the turns are more than zero
while turns > 0:

# make a counter that starts with zero
failed = 0

# for every character in secret_word
for char in word:

# see if the character is in the players guess
if char in guesses:

# print then out the character
print char,

else:

print "_",

# and increase the failed counter with one
failed += 1

# if failed is equal to zero

# print You Won
if failed == 0:
print "
You won"

# exit the script
break

print

# ask the user go guess a character
guess = raw_input("guess a character:")

# set the players guess to guesses
guesses += guess

if guess not in word:

# turns counter decreases with 1 (now 9)
turns -= 1

# print wrong
print "Wrong
"

# how many turns are left
print "You have", + turns, 'more guesses'

# if the turns are equal to zero
if turns == 0:

# print "You Lose"
print "You Lose
"

Enjoy it!!
