Hi Kylie, you are very close on this one! Here was my solution which passed:

const player1 = {
  name: 'name',
  color: 'color',
  isTurn: true,
  play() {

  } 
}

ok thanks. I did

const player1 = {
  name: 'name',
  color: 'color',
  isTurn: true,
 play: function () {}
} ```
and that worked as well.
