create the double hog game in python

The game of ‘Double Hog’

You are to construct computer program for a game called ‘Double Hog’

Double Hog is a fun dice game played using two six-sided dice.

Below are the rules for the game.


Usually played between 2 people. However, the program should allow for 2 to 4 players.


The first person to reach 100 points is the winner.


On a turn, a player rolls the dice repeatedly until either:

• a single 1 is rolled

• the player chooses to hold (stop rolling)

If either of the above occurs, it is the next player’s turn.


If a player rolls:

• a single 1 – their turn ends and the total value of both dice is deducted from their score (eg if they throw a 1 and a 3, 4 is deducted from their score; 1+5 will mean 6 is deducted from their score

[NOTE: It is possible for players to have a negative score eg “-6”]

• double 1s – player gets 25 points

• other doubles (eg 2+2, 3+3) – player gets double points (eg 2+2 counts as 8; 3+3 counts as 12; 4+4 counts as 16)

• in all other cases – the player gets the total of both dice (eg 3+4 counts as 7 points; 2+3 counts as 5 points)

Game End

When a player reaches a total of 100 or more points, that player is the winner, and the game ends.

b. Get names of players

c. Randomly select the order in which players will roll the dice

d. Start game by asking Player 1 to roll the dice when they are ready

e. Display the value of each of the two dice rolled

f. If player has rolled:

• a single 1 – display message indicating the number of points that will be deducted from their score and that it is the next player’s turn; decrement player’s score as per the rules

• two 1s – display congratulations message indicating that they have been awarded 25 points; increment player’s score by 25; display current scores for each player (‘scoreboard’); ask current player if they would like to roll again or hold

• anything else – increment player’s score as per the rules; show scoreboard; ask player whether they want to roll or hold.

g. Repeat (f) as long as Player 1 chooses to roll and they do not roll a single 1.
