Changing js futuristic mash

Hi, I am playing with the js file, and I would like to know why if I change the num variable and random number function like this I don't get the same results, but undefined answers.

function random_number(num) {
    var num = 4 ;
    return Math.floor(Math.random() * num)+1; 

I am assigning the number 4 (removed "or" statement) and added +1 at the end of the function so it is always between 1 and 4 instead of 1 and 3. Why was the "or" statement necessary and why the change on the math random function is not giving the same results?
