Error when code seems fine?


Error comes when I input row = 4 and column = 5
error: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 40, in
IndexError: list index out of range

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!"
        print "Turn", (turn + 1)
        if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 5) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 5):
            print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
            print "Turn", (turn + 1)
        elif (board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
            print "You guessed that one already."
            print "Turn", (turn + 1)
            print "You missed my battleship!"
            board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
            print "Turn", (turn + 1)
        if turn == 3:
            print "Game Over"


What code is responsible for checking bounds?
Is 5 within the board?
Is 5 allowed by your bounds check?
