Not in the ocean

#1

Hi Guys, my code is similar too and its not working

``````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)

print_board(board)

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

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'
print_board(board)

if guess_row > 4 or guess_col > 4:

print("Oops,that's not even in the ocean.")

else:
print("You missed my battleship!")
board[guess_row][guess_col] = 'X'
print_board(board)``````

Error Message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 34, in
IndexError: list index out of range
This the line with board[guess_row][guess_col] = 'X

That's not in the ocean! - code works, but won't let me move on

you have this:

``````    print("You missed my battleship!")
board[guess_row][guess_col] = 'X'
print_board(board)``````

twice, you only need it once. Think about the game flow and what everything does, which of this two is correctly placed?
