# 15. Play It, Sam

#1

So the code I have works correctly except I'm noticing a few weird things. When the board first loads up it already gives away the coordinates and then when I enter them it will say that I got it and then print turn 1 and another board until turn 4 is over. Is this correct?

``````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

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
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!"
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", turn + 1
print_board(board)``````

Your code certainly looks to behave like you stated. Obviously you want to remove/comment out the coordinates of the ship. You have those print statements right after you define ship_row and ship_col. To have the game terminate after you correctly guess the coordinates, put a Break within the if statement. After you print "Congratulations!...." Put Break on the next line and it will break out of the loop.
