Hangman Game- Python Code
Hangman Game is a letter guessing game.
In the game of Hangman, a clue word is given by the program that the player has to guess, letter by letter. The player guesses one letter at a time until the entire word has been guessed. (In the actual game, the player can only guess 6 letters incorrectly before losing).
Let’s say the word the player has to guess is “EVAPORATE”. For this exercise, write the logic that asks a player to guess a letter and displays letters in the clue word that were guessed correctly. For now, let the player guess an infinite number of times until they get the entire word. As a bonus, keep track of the letters the player guessed and display a different message if the player tries to guess that letter again. Remember to stop the game when all the letters have been guessed correctly! Don’t worry about choosing a word randomly or keeping track of the number of guesses the player has remaining – we will deal with those in a future exercise.
An example of interaction can look like this:
And so on, until the player gets the word. Here is the source code to do the same in Python
# Hangman Games # program by : rakesh kumar # website : https://cbsetoday.com import random as r # steps to select a random word from sowpods.txt file with open("sowpods.txt") as file: data = file.read().split() number = r.randint(0, len(data)) word = data[number] # create a list of underscore - # it contains exactly same number of underscore as the length of our random word lines =  for i in word: lines.append('_') # counter variable is used to track number of wrong letters. # a user can make If it is 6 then terminate the program and print message counter = 0 while True: letter = input('\nGuess your letter :') if letter in word: for i in range(0, len(word)): if word[i] == letter: lines[i] = letter else: # letter is not in the word counter += 1 # print the word with inserted letters for i in lines: print(i, end=" ") # check letters remained in the list cnt = "".join(lines).count('_') if cnt == 0 or counter == 6: break # end of while loop if counter >= 6: print("\n\n\n You looser..............Think properly") else: print("\n\n\n Yes!!!!!!!!!!! You WON this match")
In this hangman program, we are actually taking a random word from a text file “sowpods.txt” and then using the same word designed the whole program. You can also do the same with a list of words.
Well this is my version of hangman letter guessing game, What is your way to solving this problem
