# Quite embarrassed and confused - code behaving strange

#1

Not stuck in an exercise, but when playing through in the end of the lesson it seems like the code behaves strangely and I do not know the fix for it.

it prints out "Turn 1", "Turn 2", "Turn 3", "Turn 4" all in a row with different lines which make no sense after trying out numbers.

I expected it would work neatly
Thing is, it works, it just prints oddly and incorrectly

``````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)
print ship_row
print ship_col

# 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 sank my battleship!"
break

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 + 1) here!

print "Turn", turn + 1
print_board
if turn == 3:
print "Game Over"``````

Should be inside the loop so we get a guess each iteration.
