Python | Simple FLAMES game using Tkinter
  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 19 Jan, 2021

Prerequisites: 

Python offers multiple options for developing a GUI (Graphical User Interface). Out of all the GUI methods, Tkinter is the most commonly used method. It is a standard Python interface to the Tk GUI toolkit shipped with Python. Python with Tkinter outputs the fastest and easiest way to create GUI applications. Now, it’s up to the imagination or necessity of the developer, what he/she wants to develop using this toolkit. 
To create a Tkinter : 

  • Importing the module – Tkinter
  • Create the main window (container)
  • Add any number of widgets to the main window.
  • Apply the event Trigger on the widgets

The GUI would look like below:

Let’s create a GUI version of a simple FLAMES game.FLAMES is a popular game named after the acronym: Friends, Lovers, Affectionate, Marriage, Enemies, Sibling. This game does not accurately predict whether an individual is right for you, but it can be fun to play this with your friends.
 



Below is the implementation :
 

Python3




# import all functions from the tkinter
from tkinter import *
 
# function for removing common characters
# with their respective occurrences
def remove_match_char(list1, list2):
 
    for i in range(len(list1)) :
        for j in range(len(list2)) :
 
            # if common character is found
            # then remove that character
            # and return list of concatenated
            # list with Ture Flag
            if list1[i] == list2[j] :
                c = list1[i]
 
                # remove character from the list
                list1.remove(c)
                list2.remove(c)
 
                # concatenation of two list elements with *
                # * is act as border mark here
                list3 = list1 + ["*"] + list2
 
                # return the concatenated list with True flag
                return [list3, True]
 
    # no common characters is found
    # return the concatenated list with False flag
    list3 = list1 + ["*"] + list2
    return [list3, False]
 
 
# function for telling the relationship status
def tell_status() :
     
    # take a 1st player name from Player1_field entry box 
    p1 = Player1_field.get()
 
    # converted all letters into lower case
    p1 = p1.lower()
 
    # replace any space with empty string
    p1.replace(" ", "")
 
    # make a list of letters or characters
    p1_list = list(p1)
 
    # take a 2nd player name from Player2_field entry box
    p2 = Player2_field.get()
    p2 = p2.lower()
    p2.replace(" ", "")
    p2_list = list(p2)
 
    # taking a flag as True initially
    proceed = True
     
    # keep calling remove_match_char function
    # untill common characters is found or
    # keep looping untill proceed flag is True
    while proceed :
 
        # function calling and store return value
        ret_list = remove_match_char(p1_list, p2_list)
 
        # take out concatenated list from return list
        con_list = ret_list[0]
 
        # take out flag value from return list
        proceed = ret_list[1]
 
        # find the index of "*" / border mark
        star_index = con_list.index("*")
 
        # list slicing perform
         
        # all characters before * store in p1_list
        p1_list = con_list[ : star_index]
 
        # all characters after * store in p2_list
        p2_list = con_list[star_index + 1 : ]
 
 
    # count total remaining characters
    count = len(p1_list) + len(p2_list)
 
    # list of FLAMES acronym
    result = ["Friends", "Love", "Affection", "Marriage", "Enemy", "Siblings"]
 
    # keep looping untill only one item
    # is not remaining in the result list
    while len(result) > 1 :
 
        # store that index value from
        # where we have to perform slicing.
        split_index = (count % len(result) - 1)
 
        # this steps is done for performing
        # anticlock-wise circular fashion counting.
        if split_index >= 0 :
 
            # list slicing
            right = result[split_index + 1 : ]
            left = result[ : split_index]
 
            # list concatenation
            result = right + left
 
        else :
            result = result[ : len(result) - 1]
 
    # insert method inserting the 
        # value in the text entry box.
