Not Again, Did you include...? does not work


I'm at Battleship "Not Again" when I have to check if a position has already been guessed.

It asks me if I included "You guessed that one already" and yes I did, it even gets output if I prefill the board with the X

Oops, try again. Did you remember to add the "You guessed that one already." message in your elif statement?

from random import randint

board = []

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

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


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)
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

print ship_row
print ship_col
# Write your code below!
if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
    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"
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"

Would be great if you had any suggestions on what I did wrong. Thanks in advance!


Would you mind providing a link to the exact exercise you are on?


Here is the link:

Sorry that I forgot this one.


Check your print statement for "You guessed that one already." Make sure that it matches exactly what the instructions say.


Thank you. I missed the period in the end. This community is great! :slight_smile:
