A Real Win?


#1

Hello,

I have read some of the posts regarding how to insert a break and after indenting if/elif/else I am not sure how or where to go to get the desired result. I keep getting an error about indenting not matching. This section does not give good directions and this break should have been introduced when writing the if/elif/else. Any good insight on how to get this to work?

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

Since it is giving you an indentation error, can you copy and paste your code to format so we can see the structure? To do that, click on the < / > icon at the top of the message window and paste your code from the environment to there. It will show us exactly what you are looking at.
