The code works but if, after turn 1, the correct location is guessed...the game continues to prompt the user to enter more guesses until turn 4. How can I make sure the game ends when the correct location is guessed? e.g. there are 4 turns allowed but the user guesses the correct location on turn 2 and the game should end rather than continuing to ask for user input.
Replace this line with your 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 #The above print lines display the ship location # 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!" elif (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", turn + 1 print_board(board)
