# Doesn't get me the go-to next chapter

Hi I wrote the following, just doesn't get me the go-to next chapter.

``````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

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

Can you please tell me why this isn't working?
I event tried:

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

still doesn't let me go ahead.

you need to use the exact sequence of if/elif/ else statements as you are asked in the excercise. mine has worked:

``````if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
else:
if 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)``````

Thank you @tomaszd7 for pointing me in the right direction.
I figured first checking if the row,col is already guessed would be a better idea. haha
