The code below is for a board game program, which works by placing the user on a grid which then tasks the user with finding all the treasure chests. Each chest landed on gives 10 gold however landing on a bandit means all your gold is taken. The end score should be given once the user has found all the chests.

A few features including the end game, score board, timer and more are still required to be added. For now I just want feedback on how to improve the code at its current state (the code could very well be simplified).

Generally, when reading your code, I think you need to consider the DRY principle. I will elaborate on this through several specific examples, but it's generally a good thing to keep in mind and understand when you code anything. This principle also means you should almost never copy-paste code exactly: that's a sign that there's a cleaner way to organize the code.

If you have any questions about any of my suggestions, feel free to ask them in comments.

Avoid similarly named hardcoded variables

You hard define a set of very similarly named variables (multiple times):

Treasure1_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Treasure1_Col = random.randint(0,8)
Treasure2_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Treasure2_Col = random.randint(0,8)
# ...
Treasure11_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Treasure11_Col = random.randint(0,8)
Treasure12_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Treasure12_Col = random.randint(0,8)

Bandit1_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Bandit1_Col = random.randint(0,8)
Bandit2_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Bandit2_Col = random.randint(0,8)
# ...
Bandit11_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Bandit11_Col = random.randint(0,8)
Bandit12_Row = random.randint(0,8)
Bandit12_Col = random.randint(0,8)

Generally you should use lists instead, and use a loop to assign all the list elements the same thing. List comprehensions can make your code even more succinct. Here's how:

treasures_row = [random.randint(0,8) for i in range(12)]
treasures_col = [random.randint(0,8) for i in range(12)]
bandits_row = [random.randint(0,8) for i in range(12)]
bandits_col = [random.randint(0,8) for i in range(12)]

Even more idiomatically, you could store the coordinates as two-tuples, instead of having separate lists for the rows and cols:

treasures = [(random.randint(0,8), random.randint(0,8)) for i in range(12)]
bandits = [(random.randint(0,8), random.randint(0,8)) for i in range(12)]

This will of course require reorganizing other parts of your code, but the benefits far outweigh the downsides. I will now go over how to fix all the places that reference the treasure and bandit lists.

        if current[0] == Treasure1_Row and current[1] == Treasure1_Col\
           or current[0] == Treasure2_Row and current[1] == Treasure2_Col\
           # ...
           or current[0] == Treasure7_Row and current[1] == Treasure7_Col\
           or current[0] == Treasure8_Row and current[1] == Treasure8_Col:

can now become:

        if (current[0], current[1]) in treasures[:8]:

The [:8] is called a slice, and it returns a list containing the first 8 elements of the original list.

Use more loops

Mostly, you want to create your lists in list-comprehensions; so this:

for i in range(8):
    b=[]
    for j in range(8):
        b.append(' ')
    boardeasy.append(b)

will become:

boardeasy = [[' ' for j in range(8)] for i in range(8)]

This block can be shrunk significantly because it repeats:

    print("  1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8")
    print("---------------------------------")
    print ('|  ' + boardeasy[0][0] + '| ' + boardeasy[0][1] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][2] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][3] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][4] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][5] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][6] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][7] + ' | ' + '1')
    print("---------------------------------")
    # ...
    print ('|  ' + boardeasy[7][0] + '| ' + boardeasy[7][1] + ' | ' + boardeasy[7][2] + ' | ' + boardeasy[7][3] + ' | ' + boardeasy[7][4] + ' | ' + boardeasy[7][5] + ' | ' + boardeasy[7][6] + ' | ' + boardeasy[7][7] + ' | ' + '8')
    print("---------------------------------")

To start with, most print statement repeat |. Python has a built in string operation for this: it's called str.join(). Here's how to use it; you go from this:

    print('|  ' + boardeasy[0][0] + '| ' + boardeasy[0][1] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][2] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][3] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][4] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][5] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][6] + ' | ' + boardeasy[0][7] + ' | ' + '1')

to this (while also centering the character in the first column):

    print('| ' + ' | '.join(boardeasy[0][:8]) + ' | ' + '1')

But we can make it even better because the board rows are also very repetitious among each other. You can fix this with a simple for-loop:

    print("  1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8")
    print("---------------------------------")
    for row in range(8):
        print ('| ' + ' | '.join(boardeasy[row][:8]) + ' | ' + str(row + 1))
        print("---------------------------------")

(I could also automate the first line, but we'll get to that in a second.)

Don't split functions with the same content; use parameters

  • table_game_easy, table_game_medium, and table_game_hard should be combined into one function.
  • easy_level, med_level, and hard_level should be combined into one function.

There are more ways to reduce redundancy, but try to find them on your own. If you have any more questions, you can comment on this post or ask a new question.
