# Game Over!

``````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!"
print_board(board)

def random_row(board):
return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)

print ship_row
print ship_col

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!"
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"
print "Turn", turn+1
print_board(board)
if turn == 3:
print "Game over"``````

It says, "Oops, try again. Did you add your if statement with the "Game Over" message?"

Here's the output:

``````Let's play Battleship!

Notice carefully that your if statement is "Game Over" not "Game over"

Thanks a lot! Such a silly mistake.

No problem! Glad to have helped out!

Hi,
why does the codeacademy add len(board[0] -1) automatically to our random_col function? why board[0] instead of only board which we write in the random_row function

Would really appreciate if someone could provide an explanation
