ok, everything else seems to be working fine. The issue is that, if the player inputs out of the range, the following error appears.
I have tried to debug it for an hour. I just don't get it.
Can some one please help and explain what I have done wrong?
Here is the error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "python", line 41, in <module> IndexError: list assignment index out of range
Here is the 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!" print_board(board) def random_row(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 1) def random_col(board): return randint(0, len(board) - 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): 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!" 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 + 1) here! print "Turn", turn + 1 print_board(board)
