if (guess the_number):
print "Lower..."
else:

print "You guessed it! The number was", the_number
print "And it only took you", tries, "tries!\n"

raw_input("\n\nPress the enter key to exit.")

How about you check tries 10 in the condition for your while loop,
and then after the loop you use the value of tries to decide which
