Oops, try again.
Make sure you print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean." if the user guesses a row or column that is off the board.

The output is okay but i keep getting this error even though I've tried values both within and out of the range. Help!


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[0]) - 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: 
    if guess_row not in range(5) or \
       guess_col not in range(5):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean"
    else:
        print "You missed my battleship!"   
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = 'X'
        print_board(board)

You need a full stop behind ocean.


#3

Im getting the same error despite writing exactly what they ask for. and same as for you the output is fine
EDIT: solved it by cut and pasting the instructions into the code, I think I missed a space of something after a commer, why is it so pedantic?


#4

Make sure you type this:

print 'Oops, that\'s not even in the ocean.'

I think the apostrophe was your problem


#5

make sure to put a period after ocean.


#6

Turns out the compiler checks everything, including punctuation. Indeed very pedantic
