# Extra credit: Add a 2 seated second ship for each player!

#1

Hey guys, I just need help to understand something.

I'm trying to add a second boat for both players and somehow it ended up adding a boat to Player2's board with the coordinates 4 1, 4 1 which means it's overlapping.

I ranned it several times and it still haven't made the same error again. Nonetheless, I was intrigued and thought you experts might know if there is some flaw on my coding so far.

Thanks!

for x in range(5):
boardP1.append(["O"] * 5)
boardP2.append(["O"] * 5)

print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleship!"

#i want to know both games - just for fun
print "Player 1 Board:"

print "Player 2 Board:"

This is the output that made me come here and expose myself
