Bad aim , really need help


from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(0, 5):
    board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
    for row in board:
        print " ".join(row)


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)
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

print ship_row
print ship_col

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:# Write your code below!
    print "congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
    print"You missed my battleship!"
    board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
if guess_row not in range(5) or guess_col not in range(5):
    print "Oops,that's not even in the ocean."
    print"You missed my battleship!"
    board[guess_row][guess_col] = 'X'

I really dont know what to do the error is for the a line that I had passed before:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 32, in
IndexError: list index out of range

can anyone helps?


i would first check if the shot was even in the ocean before concluding that the battle ship is missed and updating the board

yep i resolve it with stetim94's tip :)! Check if shot fall in ocean before that the battleship is missed!
