yeah, I'm just keeping this thread open because I have another wrinkle.
In my code
def prompt_house(): global gold prompt_hou = raw_input('>') if prompt_hou == 'examine table': print '''There are a lot of car magazines here. You flip through them and find 5 gold.''' gold = gold+5 prompt_house()
(or any other code where I get gold for that matter)
If I examine the table more than once, for each time I examine it I get 5 more gold. How do I fix this?
