IndexError: list index out of range
This code has an error. I do not really expect it to happen. It says line 24 has an error when I input the number 5 as row and column: board[int(guess_row)][int(guess_col)] = "X"
Could you please explain how and why this is happening? As well as, What to do?
Thanks beforehand to you helpful members
