I'm an extreme beginner with Python (this game is the first time I have ever seen it) so please bear with me.

Creating a simple dice game. Place a bet. Three dice are rolled, if any are the same value you lose. If you win, you get double your bet.

I've gotten the majority of the game programmed but I cannot figure out how to input the bet data from my xhtml form into the final results.

import cgi
form = cgi.FieldStorage()

nombre = form.getvalue("nombre")
bet = form.getvalue("bet")

# print HTTP/HTML headers
print """Content-type: text/html

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html><head>
<title>Dice Game</title>
</head><body>
"""

# print HTML body using form data
import random
die = random.randint(1,6)
die2 = random.randint(1,6)
die3 = random.randint(1,6)

bet = int( form.getvalue("bet") )

print "<p>Thanks for playing, "+ nombre +". Your roll:</p>"
print "<p> %i %i %i.</p>" % (die, die2, die3)
if die == die2:
    print "<p>You lose $%i.</p>" %i (bet)
if die2 == die3:
    print "<p>You lose $%i.</p>" %i (bet)
if die == die3:
    print "<p>You lose $%i.</p>" %i (bet)
else:
    print "<p>You win $&i.</p>" %i(bet*2)

print """</body></html>"""

When the game is played, it comes up with the error "NameError: name 'i' is not defined".

I'm sure there's a very simple error I'm making but it's brought my progress to an absolute standstill.

I also have to substitute images for the text numbers and am unsure of how to proceed with that.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated. And for reference, this is how the game should function.

Alright, I figured out my mistake in not converting the int into string. So there's one problem down. Here's my code:

import cgi
form = cgi.FieldStorage()

nombre = form.getvalue("nombre")
bet = int (form.getvalue("bet") )

# print HTTP/HTML headers
print """Content-type: text/html

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html><head>
<title>Dice Game</title>
</head><body><h1>Dice Game</h1>
"""

# print HTML body using form data
import random
die = random.randint(1,6)
die2 = random.randint(1,6)
die3 = random.randint(1,6)

print "<p>Thanks for playing, "+ nombre +". Your roll:</p>"
print "<p> %i %i %i.</p>" % (die, die2, die3)
if die == die2 or die2 == die3 or die == die3:
    print "<p>You lose $" + str(bet) +".</p>"
if die != die3 and die != die2 and die2 != die3:
    print "<p>You win $" + str(bet*2) +".</p>"

print """</body></html>"""

The only thing I'm clueless on is how to replace the displayed numbers with images.

I would say you have to get/make 6 images, something like this:
dice-1.gif
dice-2.gif
dice-3.gif
dice-4.gif
dice-5.gif
dice-6.gif

I would just download the images from the website you gave us.

That would be the place to start.

Yes, I have the images, I'm just unsure of how to input the code to display them, because it's conditional on which random number is displayed. I need to replace the text it's currently outputting with images.

# print HTML body using form data
import random
die1 = random.randint(1,6)
die2 = random.randint(1,6)
die3 = random.randint(1,6)
dielist = [die1,die2,die3]

bet = int( form.getvalue("bet") )

print "<p>Thanks for playing, "+ nombre +". Your roll:</p>"
print "<p> %i %i %i.</p>" % dielist

dups = bool([die for die in dielist
             if dielist.count(die) > 1])
#True if there are duplicates in the list

if dup:
    print "<p>You lose $%i.</p>" % (bet)
else:
    print "<p>You win $%i.</p>" % (bet)


print """</body></html>"""

I think that's a better way to write the code.

print "<p>Thanks for playing, "+ nombre +". Your roll:</p><br/>"
##print "<p> %i %i %i.</p>" % dielist

for die in dielist:
    gifname = "dice-%i.gif" % die
    print '<img src="/path/to/diceimages/%s" />' % gifname

dups = bool([die for die in dielist
             if dielist.count(die) > 1])

Something like that.
I might have made a mistake in that code, since I typed it up quickly.

That code assumes that in the path:
/path/to/diceimages/
you have the files:
dice-1.gif
dice-2.gif
dice-3.gif
dice-4.gif
dice-5.gif
dice-6.gif
