Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Inheritance __str__

What do I import?

I have a question about this code... I believe that I am not referencing the correct value. Can you tell me what I should be referencing for the score values?

game_str.py
from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):
    pass

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

Hi Rocco,

You should be passing self into the __str__ method and not the Game class.

Then to access a score you only need self.score[1] as an example.

The other issue is that item indexing starts at 0. Player 1's score is at index 0 and player 2 is at index 1.
