Python

I need help with hands.py

We're playing a popular board game about snatching up real estate in Atlantic City. I need you finish out the CapitalismHand class. First off, make sure it always rolls two D6s.

I need assistance with this challenge.

hands.py
from dice import D6


class Hand(list):
    def __init__(self, size=0, die_class=None, *args, **kwargs):
        if not die_class:
            raise ValueError("You must provide a die class")
        super().__init__()

        for _ in range(size):
            self.append(die_class())
        self.sort()

    def _by_value(self, value):
        dice = []
        for die in self:
            if die == value:
                dice.append(die)
        return dice


class CapitalismHand(Hand):

    def doubles(self,*args,**kwargs)
          super().__init__(die=2,die_class=D6,*args,**kwargs)

    @property
    def ones(self):
        return self._by_value(1)

    @property
    def twos(self):
        return self._by_value(2)

    @property
    def threes(self):
        return self._by_value(3)

    @property
    def fours(self):
        return self._by_value(4)

    @property
    def fives(self):
        return self._by_value(5)

    @property
    def sixes(self):
        return self._by_value(6)

    @property
    def _sets(self):
        return {
            1: len(self.ones),
            2: len(self.twos),
            3: len(self.threes),
            4: len(self.fours),
            5: len(self.fives),
            6: len(self.sixes)
        }

Hey Nathan! In order to complete step 1/3 in this challenge, you need to override the parent class init. You then need to pass in the arguments for creating the hand. size=2 (two dices) and die_class=D6 (the die type you want). I just added this init under class CapitalismHand(Hand):

class CapitalismHand(Hand):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__(size=2, die_class=D6)

Hope this helps, and feel free to let me know if you need further help :D

Thank you for the help
