Hi Tobias,

Can you elaborate more on the issue or error you are receiving?

If you are on the first step of the challenge, remember that strings are case sensitive so you will want to make sure that your player variable exactly equals Jasmine.

Treehouse code challenges can get picky about case, so I would recommend making a habit of defining variables exactly how you're told to in the challenge. Try

var player = 'Jasmine';
