A real wni


My code is almost identical to this but it says that there is a syntax error with the line:

                                               print "Turn", turn + 1

A real win

Can you post your full code? The error may also be caused by the line above


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):
    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", turn + 1
if turn == 3:
    print "Game Over"


there is a problem here:

board[guess_row[guess_col] == "X"

actually, two problems: a missing ] after guess_row and you should set/assign X to the missed field, not compare (use single equal sign)

assigning a X to guessed position will update the board, which you print later, this will show the user the wrong guess


it now says that 'break' is an outside loop.


see these comments:

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

make sure everything is inside the loop (hint: indention)
