I cant figure this simple problem out

it says line 11 unexpected token { but that curly brace is supposed to be there. I've looked this over for 45 minutes but something so simple eludes me. Can I borrow an extra set of eyes any one? I appreciate any help! Thank you in advance.

var correctGuess = false;
var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1;
var guess = prompt('I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?');
if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber ) {
  correctGuess = true;
} else if ( parseInt(guess) < randomNumber ) {
  var guessMore = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking is more then ' + guess);
  if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber) {
  correctGuess = true;
  }
} else if ( parseInt(guess > randomNumber ) {
    var guessLess = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking is smaller then ' + guess);
  if (parseInt(guessLess) === randomNumber) {
    correctGuess = true;
  }
}
if ( correctGuess ) {
  document.write('<p>You guessed the number!</p>');
} else {
  document.write('Sorry. The number was ' + randomNumber + '.</p>');
}```

You forgot the ")" after "guess"

I edited my answer, the ")" should go after "guess", not "randomNumber"
