ANy help

object.js
const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){ 
      if (this.isTurn){
      `${this.name} is now playing!`
    }
  }

Thank you. You saved the day.

To return the string, you could do return `${this.name} is now playing!`;

Your code currently has 3 { and 2 }. It should have 3 of both { and }.

With those changes, the challenge will then ask you to use bracket notation.
