Guess the Number Python Project

Guess the Number Python Project

Guess the Number Python Project

Hello, I am working on a Guess the Number Python Project and I want to know if the provided sample code is correct or not. I have taken this source code on TechGeekBuzz and in this python project, I want to generate a random number and the user will have only 3 chances to guess. and after the user each attempt, the user will get a Popup message about how the user is close to the answer, if the user completed all the chances, the system will display the correct answer. Can anyone tell me, if Is it right or provide some other source code for the number-guessing project?

CODE --> Python

import random #bring in the random number
import time
number=random.randint(1, 200) #pick the number between 1 and 200

def intro():
    print("May I ask you for your name?")
    name=input() #asks for the name
    print(name + ", we are going to play a game. I am thinking of a number between 1 and 200")
    print("Go ahead. Guess!")

def pick():
    guessesTaken = 0
    while guessesTaken < 6: #if the number of guesses is less than 6
        enter=input("Guess: ") #inserts the place to enter guess
        try: #check if a number was entered
            guess = int(enter) #stores the guess as an integer instead of a string    

            if guess<=200 and guess>=1: #if they are in range
                guessesTaken=guessesTaken+1 #adds one guess each time the player is wrong
                if guessesTaken<6:
                    if guess<number:
                        print("The guess of the number that you have entered is too low")
                    if guess>number:
                        print("The guess of the number that you have entered is too high")
                    if guess != number:
                        print("Try Again!")
                if guess==number:
                    break #if the guess is right, then we are going to jump out of the while block
            if guess>200 or guess<1: #if they aren't in the range
                print("Silly Goose! That number isn't in the range!")
                print("Please enter a number between 1 and 200")

        except: #if a number wasn't entered
            print("I don't think that "+enter+" is a number. Sorry")
    if guess == number:
        guessesTaken = str(guessesTaken)
        print('Good job, ' + name + '! You guessed my number in ' + guessesTaken + ' guesses!')

    if guess != number:
        print('Nope. The number I was thinking of was ' + str(number))

while playagain=="yes" or playagain=="y" or playagain=="Yes":
    print("Do you want to play again?")
