The if statement that checks if number of guesses is exhausted and prints "game over" is what I'm having problems with.
The console prints out "Game over" after the fourth iteration, but I keep getting an error message.
Error message: Oops, try again. Did you add your if statement with the "Game Over" message?
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!" print_board(board) def random_row(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 1) def random_col(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 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): print "Turn", turn 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 (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 "You missed my battleship!" board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X" print_board(board) turn + 1 if turn == 3: print "Game over"
I moved that particular if statement four spaces again and still get the error message.
print_board(board) turn + 1 if turn == 3: print "Game over"
