1 Answer

Starting from where you left off

from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):
    pass
def __str__

The first step is to remove the pass and indent __str__ properly. Pass is used to fill a code block when you don't have any code to put into it.

# ...
class GameScore(Game):
    def __str__

Next create __str__ into a function and tell it to return the appropriate string.

# ...
class GameScore(Game):
    def __str__(self):
        return "Player 1: {}; Player 2: {}"

Then use .format() to fill in the values.

# ...
class GameScore(Game):
    def __str__(self):
        return "Player 1: {}; Player 2: {}".format(self.score[0], self.score[1])
