I'm stuck at the 12th part of Battleship! and I can't figure out what's wrong.
The code works correctly for guesses inside the range of the board, but if the guesses are outside, it prints the "Oops, that's not even in the ocean." message then prints the error "Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 36, in
IndexError: list index out of range"
(line 36 is ' board[guess_row - 1][guess_col - 1] = "X" '
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 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 - 1][guess_col - 1] = "X" print_board(board).
