JavaScript JavaScript Quickstart Objects and Conditionals Store and Access Data with Objects

Issue with JS Code Challenge


So the challenge part 1 asks for:

Create an object named player. Add three properties to this object: name, color, and score. Set the value of name and color to a string, and the value of score to a number.

I have entered:

var player { name: 'hi', color: 'red', score: 55 };

Yet the code fails due to the syntax checker complaining about '{'

Any ideas?

You forgot the equal sign.

var player = { name: 'hi', color: 'red', score: 55 };

Arrh! Great catch don't know how I missed that. Thank you
