In order to test if "this.isTurn" is true you need to use the triple equals sign like so "if (this.isTurn === true)" or simply write "if (this.isTurn)".

Also the "play" function is only testing if "this.isTurn" is true but there isn't any other instruction. You could for example console log something

const player1= {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){
       if (this.isTurn === true) {
        console.log('condition is true');
       }
    }
 }
