A Real Win


I was able to "pass" the exercise by using logic but I want to know why this still works. I know I didn't code it as intended.

My question is, with the instructions kind of vague, and auto filling all the pervious code from other exercises. Why would they expect you to re-write the for loop to include the break more towards the beginning of the code, when the previous exercises were not completed in that order?

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!
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"
        if turn == 3:
            print "Game Over"
    for turn in range(4):
        print "Turn", turn + 1
    # Print (turn + 1) here!


this exercises don't build the game in a logic order. Your code is a bit off, the user still gets one guess?

this hints:

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!

give a pretty big hint about the placing of the loop
