Dice roll in Python

Python is a fun language, the syntax is what feels so nice about it and how the indents are used to format the code, after using Jade and Sass, this comes very naturally to me.

I was learning about modules and found random to be a good place to start off, and turned out to be a very interesting internal module. To understand how it works I created a dice roll game, with just a few lines of code it would generate a random number, which in this context would be the side of the die, with a number.

As you can see it runs five times and generates random numbers.

 Outputs a random number five times.
 import random

attempt = 1

# Run till 5 attempts are complete
 while attempt < 5:
 number = random.randint(1, 6)
 print("Your die roll is:" + str(number))
 attempt = attempt + 1

This was a great exercise and a very interesting way to learn Python.
