Initial value of scores is wrong.
Test your function with `"ba aaa"` and see what it returns.
Don't use `max` as a var name, it has a special meaning in Python.

Although my comment above focuses on the negative, personally, I think that this is a good kata because it gives a real-world situation for doing the dot product. There are many ways to do a dot product, so it gives us practice thinking about it.

As it is, some people are challenged not by the underlying problem itself, but by the description of the problem. I like that example, @Chrono79, and think that it could strengthen the description.

Alternately, you could just write it out in words.

``` [0 0 0 0 0 1] means that Good has one Wizard. One Wizard is worth 10, so Good's total army is worth 10. [0 0 0 1 1 1 0] for Evil means that there is 1 Goblin, 1 Uruk Hai and 1 Troll. A Goblin is worth 2, Uruk Hai 3 and a Troll is 5, so Evil's army is worth 10. The result of this battle is a tie! ```

Each race has a certain worth when battling against others.

That should cover the common error, but if a test was added in the sample tests it would be fine by me. Or adding this example to the description:

``````     Good                                       Evil

0 0 0 0 0 1                   /            0 0 0 1 1 1 0
Wizard                     /       Goblin + Uruk Hai + Troll
10                       /         2    +  3       +   5
10                       /               10
``````

10 = 10 therefore it is a draw

Maybe it's just "Evil", not bad!
