I have run the following code with the error message:
File "python", line 34
SyntaxError: invalid syntax`
I've looked through the forums to find the answer, but I can't see what I have done differently to other 'correct' answers.
As for the [guess_row - 1][guess_col - 1] part - don't worry about that yet. It seems that it might be wrong, but I'll get my head around that once I sort this 'else' out!
from random import randint board =  for x in range(0, 5): board.append(["O"] * 5) def print_board(board): for row in board: print " ".join(row) print_board(board) def random_row(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 1) def random_col(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 1) ship_row = random_row(board) ship_col = random_col(board) guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:")) guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:")) print ship_row print ship_col # Write your code below! if guess_row == ship_row and\ guess_col == ship_col: print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!" else: print "You missed my battleship!" board[guess_row - 1][guess_col - 1] = X print_board(board)
EDIT - The 'else' was indented when it shouldn't have been...
