JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Object Basics Filling Out the Play Method

Bummer.. Can't find my mistake

Seems like this code will not get approved. Anything I am missing?

object.js
const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){
        // write code here.
      if (player1.isTurn === true){
        console.log('This works fine');
      }
    }
}
console.log(player1.isTurn);
console.log(player1['isTurn']);

player1.play();

Hi Michael,

You have to write

 play: function(){
        // write code here.
      if(this.isTurn) {
      }
    }

Thanks. Is this because the function is declared inside the object ?

Yes. The keyword 'this' in this particular case refers to the object player1, so it reads if player1 is turned on or if pleyer1 is true.
