Game Over


can anyone please tell me what is wrong with this code
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):
print 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!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"

# Print (turn + 1) here!


People who inspect your code would really appreciate if you would properly codify your code so that it is readable.

When you want to codify your code just do the following
1. Highlight all of your text
2. press the codify button provided above the text entry area(Highlight each button till text is displayed)
3. WIN

That is the simplest way, the other way is to put ` before and after your text. This is the tilde key

Once you do this I will be happy to help you out.


Example of codified code

def is_codified(b):
    return b if b else not b
