Hi there! If what you posted in the question is correct, then you were very close! And you did the totalScore/initialScore incrementing correctly. The problem would be in your
The line you needed:
let isWinner = totalScore != 10
This will create a new constant named isWinner and set the value to the result of the comparison between
totalScore and not equal to 10. So if the totalScore is 10 it will return a False and assign False to isWinner. Otherwise, the user has won the game.
Hope this helps!

Hi there! Ok, so it says that you have to make a constant called isWinner and if the totalScore doesn't equal 10 you win. So the not operator is != for variables or constants and the ! is for integers. It technically says isWinner needs to equal totalScore that doesn't equal 10, so you would do: let isWinner = totalScore != 10 Hope this helps : )
