It says it can't find the file.
Does a file
actually exist? And is it readable by the user running the program?

Are you running it from the same directory?

No, you need to set up the correct environment for the game
to run before calling subprocess.
However as I and others have pointed out this is almost
certainly the wrong way to approach your problem, even if
you can get it to work! You would be better putting the game
code into a function in Utilities.py and then importing that into
your menu module. You can then call the game function
# menu code here
And so that you can still ru n it as Utilities.py add a clause
at the end of IUtilities.py like
if __name__ == "__main__":
