how to check if the number is in the list

Hi I am trying to make a computer vs. computer guessing game and I don't want the computer1 to guess the same number twice. I want to know how to stop this. I believe it is around the if statement, but I'm stuck. I need help.

from random import randint

guess = randint(0,5)
computer1 = randint(0,5)
GuessList = [ ]

while computer1 != guess:
print("COmputer guessed ",computer1)
if computer1 in GuessList:
computer1 = randint(0, 5)
#computer1 = randint(0,5)

except KeyboardInterrupt:


My output is the computer1 guessing the same number more than once, but it will eventually get it.

You can just add,

while computer1 in GuessList:
    computer1 = randint(0, 5)

After your computer1 = randint(0, 5). You might have to remove your GuessList = [ ] because that will reset your GuessList each time. Instead, you should have that at the very start of your code and leave the append statement.

Or you can use

computer1 = random.choice(GuessesLeft)

GuessesLeft is a list of all the numbers computer1 has not guessed. Each time it makes a guess youc an just delete that item from the list.
