hello Here is my code:

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!"
print_board(board)

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:"))
print "Turn", turn + 1

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
else:
if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
print "You guessed that one already."
else:
print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
# Print (turn + 1) here!
print_board(board)

But the outcome shows this:
Guess Col: 2
Turn 1
Guess Row: 1
Guess Col: 1
Turn 2
Guess Row: 1
Guess Col: 1
Turn 3
Guess Row: 1
Guess Col: 1
Turn 4
You missed my battleship!
O O O O O
O X O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
None

What is wrong?

Please, paste your code with indentation. Paste it, select it and press Ctrl + Shift + C or what's better, put your code between three backquotes/backticks before your code and three backquotes/backticks after your code.

Sorry for causing you trouble but I figured it out myself, thank you

#4

No problem at all it's always better to find solution by yourself. However please remember about posting code with indents. It's much easier to find problem.
Good luck.

Well, for those that may have problems with this exercise in the near future, take a clue:

``````for turn in range(4):
print "Turn"
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!"
else:
if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
print "You guessed that one already."
else:
print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
# Print (turn + 1) here!
print turn + 1
print_board(board)``````

Thank me later

Santo it needs to dislplay Game Over though. How do you do that?

How can I do in the board?
