Battle ship "game over"

<Below this line, add a link to the EXACT exercise that you are stuck at.>
https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-python/lessons/battleship/exercises/game-over?action=lesson_resume

<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
Code seems to behave propperly without errors, but can click next because;

““Did you add your if statement with the “Game Over” message?””

<What do you expect to happen instead?>
I expect to continue to the next exercise

```python

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_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: "))

  if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
  else:
      if turn == 3:
          print "Game over"    
      elif (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 "Turn", turn + 1
            print "You missed my battleship!"
            board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
            print_board(board)
<do not remove the three backticks above>

Output to the console has to match what the exercise wants exactly, including capitalization. Double check what it’s asking for and what you have.

Thank you very much! I was really frustrated. Game over instead of Game Over :tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face::tired_face:
