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

I think there is something wrong with this objective. I've tried dot and bracket notation and it won't let me continue.

Why can't I get past this?

const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
     play: function(){
        if (this['isTurn']) {
            console.log(`${this['name']} is now playing!`);

Hi Michael,

There's two small things that stop your code from passing. It looks like you've changed the conditional to a bracket notation as well while the first challenge was to use dot notation there. While this will be the same way the test for this challenge isn't passing because of it. You'll therefor want to change this['isTurn'] back to this.isTurn.

As for the code inside your if statement you're now logging the string to the console. The challenge however asks you to return the string.

After these adjustments your play method should end up like this:

play: function(){
      if(this.isTurn) {
        return `${this['name']} is now playing!`;
