I am having difficulty understanding what the console wants GameScore to be.

Is this code challenge expecting a variable that can hold a game score or a calculator?

game_str.py
from game import Game 
class GameScore(self):
    def __str__():

:point_right: GameScore should be a class that extends Game.

But you have defined it as a class that extends "self".

You might use "self" later when defining methods inside the class.
