Please, help
Don't understand where mistake is...
File "python", line 36
SyntaxError: 'break' outside loop

for turn in range(4):
    print (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!"
    break 


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"

if turn == 3:
    print "Game Over"
    # Print (turn + 1) here!
    print_board(board)

Having the error message in mind, in your code on line 36 there is a break that is outside the preceding loop. Try and fix the indentation on that break, that should fix it.

@webka_by

the break command can be used in for & while loops. Just pull this code into your "for" loop above it:

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!"
        break 
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_board(board)
    
if turn == 3:
    print "Game Over"

this still doesn't work for me, please help

Check that all your if/else/elif statements are indented correctly - they all fall under the for loop so they should be indented, not just your initial print statement.
