# Play it, Sam. Strange Error, Help Please?

#1

So here's the issue. I'm not getting any error codes, everything is running fine, but the first time I enter my guess, for example (2, 3), it will guess that for all 4 turns. Here is my 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[0]) - 1)

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))
for turn in range(4):
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", turn + 1
print_board(board)
if turn == 4:
print "Game Over"``````

If someone could let me know the error in my coding, that would be great. Thanks.

This HAS to be in your for loop.

I think I know your problem.

``````guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))
for turn in range(4):
#Then the rest of your for loop here.``````

You need to put
`guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))`
INSIDE your `for` loop, like this:

``````for turn in range(4):
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))
#Then the rest of your for loop here.``````

I really hope this helps.

That was a great help. Thanks!

That worked. Thanks so much!

No problem. (Also, could you check out the problem I am having right now?)

Sure, I'd be glad too. But seeing as you just answered my question, I don't know if I'm on your level of Python understanding...
