Im making a game in Python. This is the code. While playing, I run into a problem when I lose. When you lose, I want it to display a message, but it simply closes the window when I double click on it's icon. How do I fix this? Also if you have any ideas on how to improve on my programing or the game design, I'm open for suggestions.

Just put a raw_input() into a garbage temporary variable at the end of the game and put a prompt like "press enter or return to continue" at the end.

Also, it is bad programming practice to put everything into the main part of the program. Break it up into subroutines for some extra programming practice.
