```My name is Chris Schueler and i am having some troubles with my Python programming

Our current project is to create the game of cribbage from scratch.

The only problem is we are not allowed to use classes, only user-defind functions and arrays. I was wondering if anybody could give me tips or pointers on adding codes or modifying some of my program

Here is my Program so far

I will also include a .py file of it incase this doesnt look legible

from random import*

def DisplayTitle():
print
print "Welcome to Tech-Sauve Cribbage"
print "--------------------------------------------"
print "               Insctructions                "
print "~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"
print "1) Only played with two players (for now)   "
print "2) The program starts with a full deck of 52 cards"
print "3) Deals out 6 cards to each player with a Suit letter"
print "4) Then asks each player what 2 cards they want to discard to the crib"
print "5) Then the program saves the crib in a temporary deck"
print "6) Players start showing cards to get an ammount equal to 31"
print "7) Once all the cards have been played, program counts the score"
print "8) Then the program will count all possible scores in each hand"
print "   And it will add the players points to their total score"
print "9) First player to reach a score of 121 wins the game"
#Gets players names
def GetPlayer1():
print
Player1 = str(raw_input("Player 1's name "))
return Player1
def GetPlayer2():
print
Player2 = str(raw_input("Player 2's name "))
return Player2
#Building the deck
def Build_Deck():
for R in range (0,52):
cardnumb = numbers[R]
cardsuit = suits[R]
card = str(numbers[R])+str(suits[R])
Deck.append(card)
return Deck,numbers,suits,card,cardnumb,cardsuit

#Variables Needed
numbers = ["A","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","10","J","Q","K"]*4
suits = ["H","C","S","D"]*13
suits.sort()
Deck = []
P1hand = []
P2hand = []
Crib = []
Cribcard = []
Cribsuit = []
P1_score = 0
P2_score = 0
Winner = 121
ele = 52
Deck,numbers,suits,card,cardnumb,cardsuit = Build_Deck()
for X in range(0,6):
Y = randint(0,ele)
draw = Deck[Y]
P1hand.append(draw)
Deck.pop(Y)
ele -= 1
for X2 in range (0,6):
Y1 = randint(0,ele)
draw2 = Deck[Y1]
P2hand.append(draw2)
Deck.pop(Y1)
ele -= 1
print
Top = randint(0,47)
Topcard = Deck[Top]
print
for count in range(0,2):
print P1hand
print
option = str(raw_input("Player 1,what CARD would you like to add to the crib?  CARDS 1 thru 6 "))
if option == "1":
Crib.append(P1hand[0])
P1hand.pop(0)
elif option == "2":
Crib.append(P1hand[1])
P1hand.pop(1)
elif option == "3":
Crib.append(P1hand[2])
P1hand.pop(2)
elif option == "4":
Crib.append(P1hand[3])
P1hand.pop(3)
elif option == "5":
Crib.append(P1hand[4])
P1hand.pop(4)
elif option == "6":

P1hand.pop(5)
print
for c2 in range(0,2):
print P2hand
print
option1 = str(raw_input("Player 2, what CARD would you like to add to the crib?  CARDS 1 thru 6 "))
if option1 == "1":
Crib.append(P2hand[0])
P2hand.pop(0)
elif option1 == "2":
Crib.append(P2hand[1])
P2hand.pop(1)
elif option1 == "3":

elif option1 == "4":
Crib.append(P2hand[3])
P2hand.pop(3)
elif option1 == "5":
Crib.append(P2hand[4])
P2hand.pop(4)
elif option1 == "6":
Crib.append(P2hand[5])
P2hand.pop(5)

print Deck
print "The TOP CARD is ",Topcard
print "Player 1's Hand is ",P1hand
print "Player 2's Hand is ",P2hand
print "The 4 cards in the Crib are ",Crib
