Well I have few issues with this, it feels like a real deep water for me.

``````from random import randint
import datetime
import time

now = datetime.datetime.now()

print ("\r\nBonsoir, Sailor! \r\n")
time.sleep(1)
print ("Welcome to the Battleships, official vodka game, okurwa games presents.")
time.sleep(1)
print ("It is already " + unicode(now.replace(microsecond=0)) + " - Perfect time to drink! \r\n")
time.sleep(1)

board = []

for x in range(9):
board.append(["O"] * 9)

def print_board(board):
for row in board:
print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleships! \r\n"
time.sleep(1)
print_board(board)

def random_row(board):
return randint(0, len(board) - 3)

def random_col(board):
return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 3)

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(0,9):
print "Turn", turn + 1
print_board(board)
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!"
break

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"
if turn == 3:
print "Game Over"``````

First thing is that I wanted to start this app nicely but it gives error on codecademy, but on my pc works fine.

File "python", line 8
print ("
^
SyntaxError: EOL while scanning string literal

It has completed the excercise anyway somehow, do I even have to run this code on the website or can I have it on my own pc only?

Second thing is I have no idea yet how to do battleships of different sizes and how to do them multiple!
Looks like the randint part is responsible for that, but it feels vogue, I dont even know why it is "(0, len(board) - 3)"
or "(0, len(board[0]) - 3)... Maybe I did missed something earlier.

Rematches and other things seems easy, but Im stuck on these things above could use some hint..

Regards.

remove \r in your print statement
