It isnĀ“t changing Os for Xs, so you can instert the same coords over and over again. Please help

#2

Put you code for the guess inside the loop.

Put that into your for loop.

#3

i noticed that just as i posted it but it wont change the Os for the Xs, so you can insert the same coordinates over and over again

#4

The question then is, are you printing the board before or after you change the item in your list? Or did you not change the location's `O` into an `X`?

Check your code and ensure that you did both of the previous.

#5

It is printing after changing the Os for Xs, but it just prints False
