A Real Win - how to use break


#1

When I copy the code here, it is obviously indented wrong. but in the screenshot, it looks correct. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.image

File “python”, line 32
break(turn)
^
IndentationError: unindent does not match any outer indentation level

....
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 sank my battleship!"
      break
	else:
  		if guess_row not in range(5) or \
    guess_col not in range(5):
   	 		print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
  		elif board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X":
    			print( "You guessed that one already." )
  		else ......

After trying everything imaginable, I managed to succeed.
If anyone else has this problem: hit Enter after the Congratulations sentence, instead of adding a row above “else”.

Could some one tell me what is bad with 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_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!"
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:
if turn + 1 < 3:
print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
elif turn + 1 == 4:
print “Game Over”

Print (turn + 1) here!

print "Turn",turn+1
print_board(board)

I have message syntax error after “break”
