Hi Mohammad,

Try use template literals or string concatenation so that the string returned from the function is equal to the phrase 'Ashley is now playing!'

Hope that helps, Ashley

try this: const player1 = { name: 'Ashley', color: 'purple', isTurn: true, play: function(){ if (this.isTurn) { } return player1['name'] + ' is now playing!' }
