Hi Matthew,

Debugging can definitely be tricky at times. I found two syntax errors in the following portion of your code:

} else if ( parseInt(guess) > randomNumber ) {
   var guessLess = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking of is less than ' + guess);
   if parseInt(guessLess) === randomNumber) { // this line is missing an opening paren ( to begin the if conditional
      correctGuess = true;
// this line is missing a closing curly brace } to end the 'else if' block
