Hey guys. I'm trying to make a simple game script where the player and 'computer' face off to guess the randomly picked number first. The problem is, at the end when the player is asked if he/she wants to keep playing, the game always restarts no matter what was entered ("", "No", "python", etc. will return as if "Yes" was entered). Here's the code:
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
