15. Play It, Same


How do I revise so that the forloop works in that it checks for each turn before you are prompted to make your next guess? As is, you are asked to make all 4 row and column guesses and then it tells you one cumulative result

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

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
for turn in range(4):
    print "Turn", turn+1
    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 > 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."
            print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
# Print (turn + 1) here!
print (turn + 1)


here is what i would do, before your loop created a variable called sunk_ship and set it to False. in each run of the loop, you prompt for a row and a col, then you check if the person sunk your ship, if so, set set sunk_ship to True. After the for loop finished all its runs, you let the user know if the ship sunk (check if sunk_ship is True or False)
