    return result

given a board of height like 4,5 etc and a width of say 5,6,4,3 etc and given a tile say 0,2,3 etc verify if the neighbor tile is next to the me tile. I wrote it but dont know what is wrong i keep geting true result any help

maybe try to do if int(neighbor) > int(x)

i had a problem recently with a while loop that wouldn't stop and from someones advice on here i used the above and it solved the issue. perhaps someone with more knowledge could ellaborate on it and/or correct me
