# [Tutor] guess my number game (reversed)

```Hi,

sorry for "resurrecting" this thread. I have tried doing as suggested but
with no luck.
I now managed to make the programme work "partially". It works as desired
for "too high" and "right" answer input, but when the users input "too low"
the programme closes.
here is what the code looks like right now.

print ("Think of a number from 1 to 100, and I will try to guess it")

import random

number = random.randint(1,100)
print (number)

answer = input ("right, too low, too high?")

number2 = random.randint (1,number)
print (number2)

number3 = random.randit (number,100)
print (number3)

answer = input ("is this right, too high, or too low?")

print ("I finally guessed your number")

input ("\n\n press the enter key to exit")

any help is really appreciated :)

Chiara
