You need to use an asterisk to unpack the tuple. A space is also needed after your colons to work. Here is the code:

from game import Game
class GameScore(Game):
    def __str__(self):
        return 'Player 1: {}; Player 2: {}'.format(*self.score)

I haven't tested it, but I think you could also do something like ...format(self.score[0], self.score[1])
