Extra Credit


So I'm just using this as a chance to understand in more detail. I run into syntax errors with elif and the print statements and it gets confusing. Is there something I can read online to make it easier to understand. Like with the second player, statistics etc I would really like to implement but I just don't know how to think in that nature.

from random import randint 

board = []

for x in range(5):
    board.append(["O"] * 5)
    #creates an argument that has a range up to 5 and appends it to the empty board.
def print_board(board):
    for row in board:
        print " ".join(row)
        #the join function removes the quotations from the zeros.

print "Let's play Battleship!"
#prints everything we've done so far with print_board(board)

def random_row(board):
    return randint (0, len(board) -1)
def random_col(board):
    return randint (0, len(board) -1)
    #generates a random number for row and col
ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
print ship_row
print ship_col

for turn in range(4):
    print "Turn " , str(turn + 1)
    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!"
        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."
        print "You missed my battleship!"
