Hello. I am a python noob asking a probably obvious question. I am making sort of a question game, although its still in the debugging stage. The problem is below. (Way below)

    #A simple game of common knowledge.

    #Dependecies
    import time
    start = ""
    lv1 = False
    lv2 = False
    lv3 = False
    choicey = False
    choicen = False
    lvRule = True
    ynRule = True
    lives = 3
    points = 0

    print "Would you like to play the question game?"
    playgame = raw_input("y/n?  ")
    if playgame == "y":
        start = True

    #Choosing a level

    while start == True:
        LVup = False
        print "Select a level"
        Next = True
        if Next == True:
            level = raw_input("1, 2, or 3  ")
        if level == "1":
            lv1 = True

I have my problem here;

            AnsIsNoLoop = True     
            while AnsIsNoLoop == True:
                AnswerN = raw_input("y/n?  ")
            if AnswerN != ("n", "y"):
                BadAns = True
            while BadAns == True:
                print "Please answer 'y' or 'n'."
                AnsNoLoop = True
            if AnswerN == "n":
                GoodAns = True
            if AnswerN == "y":
                WrongAns = True

When I answer y/n it treats it as if I answered somthing else, hence this line.

if AnswerN != ("n", "y"):
                    BadAns = True

And when I enter somthing random like fadshbfbhsf it simply repeats the question.
All help is apperciated.

Your code is really bad, but about your question: you should use not in not !=. You should start over and use list, not zillion simple variables.

Thanks for the help pyTony. I took your list advice, and it's so much simplier now. But on the old version of the code, it was simply a indent problem.
