Hello Jamela you're very close but it seems as though you are missing a closing } for your if statement.

If you take notice you'll see you have 3 opening {

  1. For the if
  2. For the function
  3. For the object literal

but only 2 closing }. Add in another closing } and you'll be good to go.

Hi Jamela :)

as Juan pointed out, you need an extra }. In addition, for the bracket notation you need to put name into quotes. So the correct code should be:

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