12 bad aim


Whats going on, it seems to work until i enter guesses outside the field, it gives error, and how do i make the player input count from 1, so that if i enter 1 it will appear in position 0. at the moment to guess first row/column i have to enter guess 0.
i donk know why but i cant copy my code here properly srsly ARGH sorry

thw errror is : Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 43, in
IndexError: list index out of range

line 43 is : board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"

from random import randint

board = []
for x in range(5):
board.append(["O"] * 5)
def print_board(board):
for row in board:
print " ".join(row)
print "Let's play Battleship!"
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)
print ship_row
print ship_col
for turn in range (4):
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
    if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > len(board) - 1) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > len(board) - 1):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
        print "You guessed that one already."
         print "You missed my battleship!"
    board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"

# Print (turn + 1) here!
print "Turn", turn + 1 
if turn == 3:
    print "Game Over"


Try putting the board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X" and print_board(board) lines into the if statement for a correct guess
This worked when i did it
