Creating a Game of Dice in Python – Practical Implementation

Hello, readers. This article talks about Creating a Game of Dice in Python through a Practical demonstration of the same.

So, let us begin! 馃檪


Understanding the Game of Dice with a flavor of Programming!

Before we move ahead and understand the actual functioning of the game through the aspects of programming, let us try to comprehend the same through a logical approach.

We assume two players as the starting point in this Game. The game begins with the rolling of the dice one by one. At every iteration, we compare the rolling output of both the players. The player with the greater amount gets the score incremented. And finally, on the final iteration, we calculate the scores of both the players to choose the winner.

Such programming logic requires us to implement some of the basic yet comprehensive programming concepts such as

  • Selection: It involves selecting various paths or making a decision based on certain conditions.
  • Iteration: Here, we instruct to perform a certain task in a recursive/repetitive manner until a condition is fulfilled.

From programming aspects, we perform some Iterative tasks which are to actually roll the dice for n times. We then also make use of the Selection process to select the winning player.

It’s a very popular game and there are many websites that allow users to play these games. All you need is to integrate the Python backend with JavaScript and HTML-based UI. According to CasinoAlpha,聽80% of the casinos are already using聽JavaScript/jQuery.

Having understood the functioning of the game through the logical approach, let us now focus on the implementation in the upcoming section.


Practical Implementation – Game of Dice in Python

We will be making use of Python as the programming language to create the Game of Dice.

The creation of the Game of Dice involves the use and understanding of the below programming concepts-

  1. Creation and Updation of variables
  2. Initialization of variables
  3. Echo of information with regards to the progress, etc.

Apart from the above concepts, we will also be making use of the Python comparison operator to compare the scores of the players.

So, let us begin!

Have a look at the below code!

import random

player1 = 0
player2 = 0


for x in range(1,6):

    
    player1 = random.randint(1, 6)
    player2 = random.randint(1, 6)

   
    print("The rolled value for Player number 01: ", player1)
    print("The rolled value for Player number 02: ", player2)

    
    if player1 > player2:
        print("The Winner of",x ,"chance is PLAYER 01")
        player1 = player1 + 1  
    elif player2 > player1:
        print("The Winner of",x ,"chance is PLAYER 02")
        player2 = player2 + 1
    else:
        print("It is a DRAW between the players!!")

print("### The GAME ENDS! ###")
print("Score of Player 01:", player1)
print("Score of Player 02:", player2)

Explanation:

  • At first, we create and initialize two variables for the two players in the game.
  • We then import the random module in order to make use of random.randint() function to roll the dice between 1 and 6 as the score.
  • We plan to have the above task to happen iteratively 5 times before we select the winner of the Dice game. Thus, we make use of the range() function for the same. This is when the concept of iteration comes into the picture.
  • We then compare the score of the players by comparing their dice roll out values. On the same time, we keep recording their scores within the variables to check at the end of the last iteration. Here, we make use of the selection process to choose the values by comparison based on certain conditions.
  • At the end of the last iteration, we display the scores of the players collated together throughout the iterations.

Output:

The rolled value for Player number 01:  2
The rolled value for Player number 02:  6
The Winner of 1 chance is PLAYER 02
The rolled value for Player number 01:  1
The rolled value for Player number 02:  3
The Winner of 2 chance is PLAYER 02
The rolled value for Player number 01:  2
The rolled value for Player number 02:  3
The Winner of 3 chance is PLAYER 02
The rolled value for Player number 01:  5
The rolled value for Player number 02:  5
It is a DRAW between the players!!
The rolled value for Player number 01:  2
The rolled value for Player number 02:  4
The Winner of 5 chance is PLAYER 02
### The GAME ENDS! ###
Score of Player 01: 2
Score of Player 02: 5
