Capitalism game 3

This part sounds easy but can anyone point out what I’m missing? Thanks!

from dice import D6

class Hand(list):
    def __init__(self, size=2, die_class=D6, *args, **kwargs):
        if not die_class:
            raise ValueError("You must provide a die class")

        for _ in range(size):

    def _by_value(self, value):
        dice = []
        for die in self:
            if die == value:
        return dice

class CapitalismHand(Hand):
    def ones(self):
        return self._by_value(1)

    def twos(self):
        return self._by_value(2)

    def threes(self):
        return self._by_value(3)

    def fours(self):
        return self._by_value(4)

    def fives(self):
        return self._by_value(5)

    def sixes(self):
        return self._by_value(6)

    def _sets(self):
        return {
            1: len(self.ones),
            2: len(self.twos),
            3: len(self.threes),
            4: len(self.fours),
            5: len(self.fives),
            6: len(self.sixes)
    def doubles(self):
       return self[0]==self[1]

    def reroll(cls):
        if self[0]==self[1]:
            return cls(self)

you are doing great, The reroll method should just return a new instance of the CapitalismHand class.. that's it..

    def reroll(cls):
        return cls()

I don't get it much. we're not specifying the class here. How would the programm know that 'cls' is self?

I’m not sure. I did this challenge a while back so I can’t remember. But my best guess is that cls() refers to the Hand class itself. The code is returning a new instance of the Hand class.

cls refers to the class that the class method belongs to, which is CapitalismHand in this case.
