You have a space between your object and your property. Remove the space and it should work. Look here at the "Accessing Object Properties"-section for more information: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_objects.asp

// This is your code now
player1 .isTrue= false

// this is how it should be
player1.isTurn = false;

Hope this helps and happy coding!

thanks Andreas

also note that the property is 'isTurn' and not 'isTrue'.
