Shouldn't the "X" be one spot in an item rather than a whole row?


Battleship, however everything is passing and continuing.

I am expecting it to be single characters and not entire rows, am I expecting to much to early, or missed defining something?

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)

print ship_row
print ship_col

guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

# Write your code below!
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."
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row] = "X"
        board[guess_col] = "X"


yea, you should have combined the coordinates to a single spot:

board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"

it is a multi dimension list. so you need two indexes to reach the inner list
