PROject Python: Hangman Game!

Quote of AWESOMENESS: “First, solve the problem. Then, write the code.” ~ John Johnson

Yup, I know, this is like the fourth blog in a row that relates to Python. BUT, it’s okay! This one is really fun. The program we will be making today is Hangman. The code is shown below:


import random

def print_game_rules(max_incorrect,word_len):
    print("This game we will be playing hangman!")

def display_figure(bad_guesses):
    gallows = (

Honestly, this was a challenging project at the start and I had quite a few obstacles that were highly annoying but eventually here we are!

 

Pssst, don’t forget to be awesome today.

Yours truly,
