My name's Mark, I'm relatively new to the site, only recently started coding.
I am stuck on the Bad Aim portion of Battleship.
Up to this point, my code seems to handle all the contingencies just fine:
Hits and misses generate the right responses, and when guesses are out of range/off the board, it prints "Oops, that's not even in the ocean!"
Yet, I get an error message saying "Make sure you print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean." if the user guesses a row or column that is off the board."
Please help!! Where have I gone wrong?
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_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) 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!" print board[guess_row][guess_col] else: if guess_row in range(5) and guess_col in range(5): print "You missed my battleship!" board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X" if guess_row not in range(5) or \ guess_col not in range(5): print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean!" print_board(board)
