Please help me with scores!!

I need a help here

game_str.py
Add a __str__ method to GameScore that returns the score in the string "Player 1: 5; Player 2: 10", using the correct values from self.score. self.score is a tuple with Player 1's score and Player 2's score like (5, 10).
You do not need to define self.score. It comes from the Game class.

from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):

    def __str__(self):
        return '{}:{},{}:{}'.format(Player1,self.score,Player2,self.score)

I remember trying to do it the way you did. This seems to be what is expected:

from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):

    def __str__(self):
        return 'Player 1: {}; Player 2: {}'.format(self.score[0], self.score[1])

The spacing must be correct to pass the challenge. And it's not looking for player 1 and player 2 to be passed in. It just wants you to type it in.
