I'm currently stuck on this exercise. It keeps giving me this error message: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 32, in
IndexError: list index out of range
It's referring to the first "board[guess_row] [guess_col] = "X" line. I don't understand how it's out of range or what's wrong with it, because I read through the forum, and plenty of other users have the exact same code. I'm almost positive my indentation is correct. Please 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) - 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: print "You missed my battleship!" board[guess_row] [guess_col] = "X" print_board(board) 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)
