JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Object Basics Creating Object Literals

add an empty method to the object literal called play.

I cannot understand how to do the second part to this challenge.

Hi Alana, In second task all you have to do is to use dot notation to add a method called play. You can use dot notation to access any property of an object or add new property to an object. Look at the code below - all I'm doing here is that I'm using dot notation to add method (that's how we call functions that are properties to objects) called play. It's just an empty arrow function. If you are not sure what an arrow function is look at examples here: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_arrow_function.asp

const player1 = {
  name: 'AnyName',
  color: 'anyColor',
  isTurn: true
}

player1.play = () => {};
