Bad Aim


Oops, try again. Your code looks a bit off. Check the Hint if you need help! Your code threw the following error: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc2 in position 10: ordinal not in range(128)

I don´t know what is wrong with my code?
I guess it has to be with the range(5)

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
    if guess_row not in range(5) and 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"


the "colon" you use on that line doesn't appear to be a valid colon


There are 3 conditions here and I believe the 3 can be nested in an if, elif and else conditions. Doing this will make the logic clearer to code and also to read and figure out later.


do range(0,5) on both of them of your ifs then in the board[guess_row -1][guess_col -1]
but when you have to guess from your keyboard put small numbers like 4 nand 2


How about try "if guess_row not in range(5) or guess_col not in range(5): " instead of and

and I think the "print_board(board)" should indent with "board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X" ", not else
