# Day 014 - Project 14 : 2 player rock paper scissors

The answer the user puts is invisible and it doesnt print the right text

``````print("Rock Paper Scissors  ")
print("R, P, or S")

from getpass import getpass as input

one = input("Player 1 > ")
two = input("Player 2 > ")

if one == "R" or "r" and two == "P" or "p":
print("Player 2's paper smothers Player 1's rock!")
elif one == "R" or "r" and two == "S" or "s":
print("Player 1's rock smashes Player 2's scissors!")
elif one == "R" or "r" and two == "R" or "r":
print("Draw, no one wins!")
elif one == "S" or "s" and two == "S" or "s" :
print("Draw, no one wins!")
elif one == "P" or "p" and two == "P" or "p" :
print("Draw, no one wins!")
elif one == "P" or "p"  and two == "R" or "r":
print("Player 1's paper smothers Player 2's rock!")
elif one == "P" or "p"  and two == "S" or "s":
print("Player 2's scissors cut Player 1's paper to shreds!")
elif one == "S" or "s"  and two == "R" or "r":
print("Player 2's rock smashes Player 1's scissors!")

elif one == "S" or "s" and two == "P" or "p":
print("Player 1's scissors shred Player 2's paper to shreds")
else:
print("Use R, P, or S next time" )
``````

That’s the point, so the other player can’t cheat.

So in Python, a non-empty string is always True. And Python is reading this like

``````if (one == "R") or ("r")
``````

Since `"r"` will return True, it doesn’t care what the users inputted. Instead, use the `.upper()` method (makes the input uppercase, no matter what was actually inputted) like so:

``````one = input("Player 1 > ").upper()
two = input("Player 2 > ").upper()

if one == "R" and two == "P":
print("Player 2's paper smothers Player 1's rock!")
elif one == "R" and two == "S":
print("Player 1's rock smashes Player 2's scissors!")
elif one == two:
print("Draw, no one wins!")
elif one == "P" and two == "R":
print("Player 1's paper smothers Player 2's rock!")
elif one == "P" and two == "S":
print("Player 2's scissors cut Player 1's paper to shreds!")
elif one == "S" and two == "R":
print("Player 2's rock smashes Player 1's scissors!")

elif one == "S" and two == "P":
print("Player 1's scissors shred Player 2's paper to shreds")
else:
print("Use R, P, or S next time" )
``````

I made the if statements a bit shorter, by the way.
