JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Improving the Random Number Guessing Game

Hmm...I can't seem to find the error in my code

I've been staring at this screen for what feels like hours. What's keeping my random number guessing game from working? :O

var correctGuess = false; var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1; var guess = prompt('I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?'); if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber ) { correctGuess = true; } else if ( parseInt(guess) < randomNumber ) { else if ( parseInt(guess) < randomNumber ) { var guessMore = prompt('Try again The number I am thinking of is more than ' + guess);
if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber){ correctGuess = true; }
} else if (parseInt(guess) > randomNumber ) { var guessLess = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking of is less than ' +guess);
} if(parseInt(guessLess === randomNumber ){ guessLess = true; }
if ( correctGuess ) { document.write('<p>You guessed the number!</p>'); } else { document.write('<p>Sorry. The number was ' + randomNumber + '.</p>'); }

I'm not sure if it was just the way it pasted, but you have a duplicate line: else if ( parseInt(guess) < randomNumber ) { else if ( parseInt(guess) < randomNumber )

If you want... here is the correct code so you can compare. https://w.trhou.se/650gnms6eg Just click the script.js. :)
