Rock-Paper-Scissors in Python

A simple game played between two people, in which each of them has to form one of three gestures: 👊 rock, ✋ paper, or ✌ scissors. In this version, the player has to compete against the computer.

Source Code

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import random

random.seed()

symbols = { 1 : 'Rock', 2 : 'Paper', 3 : 'Scissors' }
rules = { 1 : 3, 2 : 1, 3 : 2 }
done = False

print('*** Rock-Paper-Scissors ***')

while not done:
    # player's choice
    print('\nPlease choose a gesture:\n')
    print('1) Rock')
    print('2) Paper')
    print('3) Scissors')

    try:
        player = int(input('\nYour choice: '))
    except ValueError:
        print('Invalid input.')
        continue

    print('\nYou have chosen: {}'.format(symbols[player]))

    # computer's choice
    computer = random.randint(1, 3)
    print('The computer has chosen: {}'.format(symbols[computer]))

    # results
    if player == computer:
        print('Draw!')
    elif rules[player] == computer:
        print('{} beats {}. You have won!'
              .format(symbols[player], symbols[computer]))
    else:
        print('{} beats {}. The computer has won!'
              .format(symbols[computer], symbols[player]))

    replay = input('\nAnother game? [y/N] ')

    # replay or quit
    if replay.lower() != 'y':
        done = True
