Python Object-Oriented Python Dice Roller Boards

Why am I getting an error?

Create a new Board subclass named TicTacToe. Have it automatically be a 3x3 board by automatically setting values in the init.

boards.py
class Board:
    def __init__(self, width, height):
        self.width = width
        self.height = height
        self.cells = []
        for y in range(self.height):
            for x in range(self.width):
                self.cells.append((x, y))

class TicTacToe(Board):
    super().__init__(3,3)

You've got the right idea, but you should call the super's __init__ method from within your own override of it.

I'm sorry Steven, I didn't understand the OOP's concepts clearly. I've been trying to do code challenges to try to check my understanding of that video concepts, and now I started re-watching the course (object-oriented) again from starting.

I thought I was overriding the init method of the class Board by using super() in TicTacToe.

class TicTacToe(Board):
    def __init__(self):        # <-- this defines the override of __init__
        super().__init__(3,3)  # <-- this is what the override DOES
