There are two errors:

  • declare init with def
  • assign the init parameters to the class attributes
class Player(object):
  def __init__(self, last_name, first_name, score): #<-- use def
    self.last_name = last_name
    self.first_name = first_name
    self.score = score

Thanks again! I forgot about the 'def' before the init function...
