# [Tutor] My first python program!

Ok here is something I can't figure out I put a define at the top of the
program called   tries = 5

I need to make this part of the program count down from 5 every time they
get a guess wrong. How do I do that?

def game2():
a = randrange(1, 10)
guess = int(raw_input("Pick a number from 1 to 10, You only get 5 tries!:
\r\n") )
while guess != a:
print "Thats not it!\r\n"
guess = int(raw_input("Pick a number from 1 to 10, You only get 5
tries!: \r\n") )
else:
print "Congrats! that was the correct number!\r\n"
ans = raw_input("Would you like to play again?[y/n]: ")
if ans == 'y':
game2()
else:
while ans != 'n':
print "That is not a choice!\r\n"
ans = raw_input("Would you like to play
again?[y/n]: ")

print "Thank you for playing, come back again!\r\n"

Thanks

Kevin
