Im trying to change this modified blackjack game to where there is no computer. A choice of either two or three players is asked with three cards dealt instead. How can I i change this current code to 1) prompt user for either 2 or 3 players(no computer), 2) have a 2 or 3 player game that works. Any idea or input is welcomed, thanks!
from random import choice as rc def total(hand): # how many aces in the hand aces = hand.count(11) # to complicate things a little the ace can be 11 or 1 # this little while loop figures it out for you t = sum(hand) return t # a suit of cards in blackjack assume the following values cards = [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 10, 10, 11] total_deck = cards * 4 # there are 4 suits per deck and usually several decks # this way you can assume the cards list to be an unlimited pool cwin = 0 # computer win counter pwin = 0 # player win counter while True: player =  # draw 2 cards for the player to start player.append(rc(cards)) player.append(rc(cards)) pbust = False # player busted flag cbust = False # computer busted flag while True: # loop for the player's play ... tp = total(player) print "The player has these cards %s with a total value of %d" % (player, tp) if tp > 31: print "--> The player is busted!" pbust = True break elif tp == 31: print "\a BLACKJACK!!!" break else: hs = raw_input("Hit or Stand/Done (h or s): ").lower() if 'h' in hs: player.append(rc(cards)) else: break while True: # loop for the computer's play ... comp =  comp.append(rc(cards)) comp.append(rc(cards)) # dealer generally stands around 27 or 28 while True: tc = total(comp) if tc < 28: comp.append(rc(cards)) else: break print "the computer has %s for a total of %d" % (comp, tc) # now figure out who won ... if tc > 31: print "--> The computer is busted!" cbust = True if pbust == False: print "The player wins!" pwin += 1 elif tc > tp: print "The computer wins!" cwin += 1 elif tc == tp: print "It's a draw!" elif tp > tc: if pbust == False: print "The player wins!" pwin += 1 elif cbust == False: print "The computer wins!" cwin += 1 break print print "Wins, player = %d computer = %d" % (pwin, cwin) exit = raw_input("Press Enter (q to quit): ").lower() if 'q' in exit: break print print print "Thanks for playing blackjack with the computer!"
