Battleship! Game over. Game over


The IDE reads:
Oops, try again. Did you add your if statement with the "Game Over" message?

However the code runs just fine and prints Game over if it really is game over.

I'm a little frustrated because it runs and the Game over is in the if statement, I don't know what they want... How it should look.

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"
        if turn ==3:
            print "Game over"
            print "Turn", turn + 1


Freaking Heck.... All I had to do was capitalize the "O" in Game Over.... Face Palm

But I am still looking for more efficient ways to write this code. If you got any tips, let me know!
