Not Again


This is the error message “Oops, try again. Did you remember to add the “You guessed that one already.” message in your elif statement?”

I expected it to work since I checked correctly if there was an “X” there. I was having trouble figuring out where the elif statement went.

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"


Look here at your code (after print):

And look at what Codecademy wants:

“You guessed that one already.”

Compare your sentences… you forgot to add a period (.) after your sentence. :slight_smile:
Codecademy wants it to look just like their sentence.


Thank you! I realized it after I posted the question haha


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!”)
else :
print(“You missed my battleship!”)
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"

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"


if you told me to make it alone without looking to any structure ,i think i will faild

is it normal ?
i understand every thing but when you say to me make game batt… i think it’s difficult
