Oops, that's not even in the ocean.

The program creates a 5x5 grid of the play area, but when I input a 5 for either the row or column guess, it returns that it isn't even in the ocean.


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)

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

print ship_row
print ship_col

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

You did not create the nested else: after the if statement should be else: /elif/else/ and don't forget to check the indentation.
