Silly game of dice that you can play in your browser or over the network (tis just a simple python WSGI application):

#!/usr/bin/env python3 
# Single-file dice game over the network 

import wsgiref.simple_server 
import random 

PORT = 8000 

def application(environ, start_response): 
    start_response('200 OK', [('Content-Type', 'text/html;charset=utf-8')]) 
    my_number = random.randint(1, 6) 
    your_number = random.randint(1, 6) 

    if my_number > your_number: 
        result = "You lose!" 
    elif my_number == your_number: 
        result = "It's a draw." 
        result = "Ack, you win!" 

    response = '''<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <title>Roll the dice</title> 
    <p> Your number was: %s </p> 
    <p> My number was: %s </p> 
    <p> <strong>%s</strong> </p> 
    <p> To play again, just refresh the page. </p> 
    </html> ''' % (your_number, my_number, result) 

    return [response.encode('utf-8')] 

    server = wsgiref.simple_server.make_server('', PORT, application) 
    print("Now listening on port %s..." % PORT) 

Do I recommend this to anyone wanting to build a proper, scalable web application? Likely not, but it's good to know that Python has the capability to do this kind of thing already built-in.
