This should be working but is not. I get "Bummer! Try again!"

Someone suggested this code, so I think it should work, but is not.

game_str.py
from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):
  self.score = 5,10
  return "Player 1: {}; Player 2: {}".format(*self.score)

Hi, Elizabeth, couple of issues here.

Add a str method to GameScore

The challenge ask to define a __str__ method, and put your code there; you haven't defined the method yet.

You do not need to define self.score. It comes from the Game class.

And you shouldn't manually assign values to the self.score, as it comes from Game class.

from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):

  def __str__(self):
    return "Player 1: {}; Player 2: {}".format(*self.score)

Hope it helps.
