Python Object-Oriented Python Dice Roller Giving a Hand


When I try to create an instance of the Hand class in the python shell I get the following error message:

>>> import dice, hands                                                                                                                                 
>>> hand = hands.Hand(size=5, die_class=dice.D6)

  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

Here is my code (as far as I can see it matches the code in the lesson):

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

    for num in range(size):

You have int instead of init here:

def __int__(self, size, die_class=None, *args, **kwargs):

should be

def __init__(self, size, die_class=None, *args, **kwargs):
