You're close!

const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){
      if(this.isTurn) {
       // They ask you to *return* the string. And instead of using a = you should concatenate the string using a +
       return this['name'] + ' is now playing!';
      }
    }
}

And by using this in the return statement you make your code more modular!
