Because (surprise!) you are using break outside of a loop. Break is
only valid to break out of a for or while loop, and no where else. What
do you want to do with that program? Quit if playAgain() returns false?
Just leave out the else entirely, and if gameIsDone is False, it will
continue outside of that block.
