JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Object Basics Filling Out the Play Method

I think I'm having trouble understanding a question in the code challenge.

I'm not sure what an empty is statement is.

const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){
      if (player1.isTurn){ }
        // write code here.

Hey Lars Johansen 👋

Looks like your interpretation of an empty if statement is the same as expected in this challenge, a conditional without a block of code to run when the condition is met 😄

To pass the challenge however you'll want to have a look at the condition that you've created. Instead of specifically targeting the player1 object the challenge is expecting the use of the this keyword 🙂

Hope this helps!

I figured it out, but there wasn't any knowledge about using the 'this' keyword in the video's before the code challenge. You might consider changing the code challenge to reflect this in the future. BR Lars
