I think i am missing something, but can't really figure it out what?

game_str.py
from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):
    pass

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

Hi Gilang,

You are on the right track and almost got it. Just a few things:

1) You will need to remove pass from GameScore

2) Be very mindful of the format of the string output. The challenges are very picky with this stuff and it needs to be exactly as the challenge describes. Notice the semi-colon and the spaces between characters.

3) self.score is a tuple and it will need to be unpacked. It contains both player's scores in one variable.

Hope this helps.
