I'm trying to figure out why, when I run my code, I am not getting the chance to input a second guess when I guess incorrectly.

Here is the original video for reference: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/javascript-basics/making-decisions-with-conditional-statements/improving-the-random-number-guessing-game

Here is my code:

```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 ) {
// is the guess lower than the random number?
var guessMore = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking of is more than' + guess);
// we let the player know it is incorrect

if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber {
correctGuess = true;

// this tests if the second guess is correct, and sets the value to true, because the user has gotten it right.
}

else if (parseInt(guess) < randomNumber ) {
//is the guess higher than the random number?
var guessMore = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking of is less than' + guess);
// we let the player know it is incorrect
if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber {
correctGuess = true;
// this tests if the second guess is correct, and sets the value to true, because the user has gotten it right.
}

if ( correctGuess ) {
// we test the value of this variable and print the appropriate message
document.write('<p>You guessed the number!</p>');
} else {
document.write('<p>Sorry. The number was ' + randomNumber + '.</p>');
}
``` For one thing, you're missing closing parentheses in lines 11 and 22:

11 if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber {

22 if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber {

And then you are missing closing braces for those same if statements. Adding these closing parentheses and braces makes the code run, but you also have your greater than and less than tests backwards.

Try with this correction...

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 of is more than" + guess);

```if(parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber) {
correctGuess = true;
} else if (parseInt(guess) < randomNumber) {

var guessMore = prompt("Try again. The number I am thinking of is less than");
}

if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber) {
correctGuess = true;

}
```

}

if ( correctGuess ) { document.write("<p>You guessed the number!</p>"); } else { document.write("<p>Sorry. The number was " + randomNumber + ".</p>"); }

Enjoy. :)
