I've attempted to solve this on my own for quite some time now - but to no avail. Whenever i execute my code to test that my "Oops, that's not even in the ocean." message will display properly should numbers that are out of range be entered, it fails - giving me this.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 27, in
IndexError: list index out of range
I would be indebted if someone could explain precisely what i am doing wrong - everything else in the code seems to be functioning correctly.
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) 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 board[X][guess_row] board[X][guess_col] # Write your code below! if guess_row not in range(5) or \ guess_col not in range(5): print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean." elif board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X": print "You guessed that one already." elif guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col: print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!" else: print "You missed my battleship!" board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X" print_board(board)
