13/19 Can't figure out what's wrong


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)


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

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = 'X'
if guess_row not in range(5) or \
guess_col not in range(5):
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!"

The error says
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 32, in
IndexError: list index out of range
I bolded line 32. Apologies, I don't know how to indent on the forum.


@logan_dailey can you re-post your code with indents

if you want to format your code when you paste it here you have three options

  1. select the code (after you paste it here) and press ctrl + k or
  2. select the code(after you paste it here) and press </> in the tools pane
  3. put this character ` three times at the begining and end of code
