Got to it before me lol

Lol I was typing so fast so there weren’t two answers.

lol, thank you very much, guys.

Also, why is the first print an f string?

Don’t know, I just like f strings :confused:

To speed things up, especially if you have a lot of conditions and they are exclusive, use elif instead of a sequences of if’s

print("Choices: 1. you will die, 2. Chase the impostor off the ship, 3. get yeeted")
choice=int(input("enter a number (1,2,3):")) #make sure to use numbers with int
if choice ==1: print("goodbye")
elif choice ==2: print("They were not the impostor")
elif choice ==3: print("YEET")

hey i was going to comment that >:|
I still will:

Why are they disturbing you?:
[1] They are disturbing you because...
[2] They are disturbing you because...
[3] They are disturbing you because...
choice = input("")
if choice == "1" :
elif choice == "2" :
elif choice == "3" :
   print("MiloCat is the best kitten :D")

Mine has better syntax :smiling_imp: @Doomsdaybear

How to make a simple text choices in python

You can just do a simple print & input statement.

What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
[1]. Chocolate
[2]. Vanilla
[3]. Strawberry
choice = int(input(">"))
if choice == 1:
elif choice == 2:
elif choice == 3:

Adding more features

If u wanna get more advanced, you can make it so that the user can change their choice by pressing and
The simplest way to do it is by using the getkey module and by moving the cursor using the ansi.cursor module.

from sys import stdout
from getkey import getkey
from ansi.color import fg
from ansi import cursor

def menu(choices):
  global pos
  pointer = fg.boldblue('>')
  for choice in enumerate(choices):
    text = f'  {choice[0]+1}. {choice[1]}'
    if choice[0] == 0:
      text = fg.bold(text)
  print(cursor.hide()+cursor.up()*(len(choices))+pointer, end='')

  pos = 1
  while 1:
    key = getkey()
    text = f'  {pos}. {choices[pos-1]}'
    if (key == '\x1b[A' or key == 'w') and pos > 1:
      pos -= 1
      print(f'\r{text}\r' + cursor.up() + pointer + \
            fg.bold(f' {pos}. {choices[pos-1]}'), end = '')
    elif (key == '\x1b[B' or key == 's') and pos < len(choices):
      pos += 1
      print(f'\r{text}\r' + cursor.down() + pointer + \
            fg.bold(f' {pos}. {choices[pos-1]}'), end = '')
    elif key == '\n':
      return pos
    elif key.isdecimal():
      number = int(key)
      if 0 < number <= len(choices):
        return number
print('What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?')
choice = menu(['Chocolate', 'Vanilla', 'Strawberry'])
if choice == 1:
elif choice == 2:
elif choice == 3:
