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

}

Hi Rhonda,

The question is asking for the body of the if statement to be empty. The conditional (the parentheses) should still be filled in as normal.

The question gives you a hint about what it is expecting inside the parentheses (and depending on how you fill it in, the bummer message might give you another hint).

You'll fill in the body of the if statement in the next challenge step.

Hope that helps,

Cheers

Alex
