I am confused by the instructions here.

Not certain what this is asking: Modify the Monster constructor to take one parameter of name. Inside the constructor function, when it creates a new instance assign the parameter name to the property of name on the new instance.

monster.js
function Monster (name) {

}

Remember that the new instance is referred to as this. So you want something like:

function Monster (name) {
    this.name = name;
}

This is very similar to what was done in the video using Dice and sides.

Yeah I figured it out. Thanks for answering the question though.

you need to add a property on the Monster object of name that is equal to the argument of name

this.name = name;
