why it doesnt work?

class Game:
  def __init__(self):
    self.current_score = [0, 0]

  def score(self, player):
    self.current_score[player] = self.current_score[player] + 1

The issue is that player will be a value of either 1 or 2 and self.current_score only has two elements (note: list indexes start at 0).
