I already set the value of the score to a number. I don't know what I'm doing wrong?

script.js
var player = {
 name: 'rov',
 color: 'blue',
 score: '1'
};
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

<script src="script.js"></script>

Try removing the '' around the 1 to make it a number, the brackets make it a string.

var player = { name: 'rov', color: 'blue', score: 1 };

Hey man, you've almost done it but you've missed one crucial thing!

 script.js
var player = {
 name: 'rov',
 color: 'blue',
 score: '1' // notice the quotation marks? that turns it into a string
};

/* Instead try: */
var player = {
 name: 'rov',
 color: 'blue',
 score: 1;
};
