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

                return True
                return False

Hi Aldo,

Your problem is your comparison. You write for i in self, thus each i must be an element in self, yet on the next line you test if i is equal to self. An element of a list can never be equal to the list itself.

Remember that this class will always comprise exactly two elements, and so you can safely check if the element at index 0 is equal to the element at index 1.

Hope that helps
