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

Get an error message

I don't understand what is wrong with my code since everything that the error message said is included ("this" and dot-notation). What is wrong?

object.js
const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function ( ) {
        if (this.isTurn === true) {
            }
    }
}

You don't need the == true when evaluating a boolean. :)

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

Oh my! So obvious - thank you!
