class Player

I really have no idea of how to do this. I guess I do not know what is meant by "I should be able to set them through init.

string = '''Love, Kenneth: 20
Chalkley, Andrew: 25
McFarland, Dave: 10
Kesten, Joy: 22
Stewart Pinchback, Pinckney Benton: 18'''

class Player:
  def _init_(self, string):
    self.players = re.match(r'^(?P<last_name>[\w ]+),\s(?P<first_name>[\w ]+): (?P<score>\d{2})$',string,re.M)
    return self.players.group(0)

Hint. Leave the re.search outside of the class as the solution to Task 1. It's not obvious, but the grader will generate arguments using the re.search then pass these arguments to your class. Your task 2 is to add the parameter list to __init__() to received them then set their value to class attributes using the form self.some_attribute = some_parameter

Also, __init__() does not need a return
