IndexError: list index out of range

It keeps showing this error. I do not know where went wrong. The weird thing is it worked when my inputs are outside of the ocean, but not when it is within the ocean.

Have you read the error message? What is it suggesting that you did? Which line does it correspond to? What values were you using at that line at that time? Were they what you intended?

#3

Your code looks a bit off. Feel free to peek back at earlier exercises if you need help! Your code threw teh following error: list index out of range

line 34

I used 2 for row, and 3 for column. In fact, any numbers that are supposed to be "in the ocean" cannot fit.

# Be sure to indent four spaces!

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

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 + 1) here!
print_board(board)

Got it!
I forgot to add 'board' in front of the indexes, in line 34.
