# How to make the valid guess to be between 1 - 5 and not 0 - 4

#1

I would like to make the valid inputs to be between 1 - 5 instead of 0 - 4. Which means that row 0 and col 0 should be hit with a guess_row of 1 and guess_col of 1. If you got a tip or trick to lead me in the right direction, please share it! Thanks

``````board = []

for x in range(0,5):
board.append(["O"] * 5)

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

# Hide a ship on the 5x5 board:
from random import randint

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

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

# Let the player guess where the ship is hidden:
for turn in range(6):
print "Enter a guess between 0 and 4."
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row: "))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Column: "))

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
break
else:
if guess_row not in range(5) or \
guess_col not in range(5):
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_board(board)
turn += 1
print "Turn",turn,"out of 6 has ended!"
print ""
if turn == 6:
print "Game over!"``````

You could have the user enter 1 through 5 and just subtract one from their guess or you could alter the ranges in your code. `range(1,6)`
