Actually, it looks like you got the concept right! But you have 2 other errors:

  • objects don't refer to themselves by name, that's what the keyword this is for
  • a code block surrounded by braces (empty or not) doesn't need a semicolon after it

It's never necessary to compare a Boolean value with "true", you can just test it directly (as you did originally):

      if (this.isTurn) { }

Glad I could help. You can mark a question solved by choosing a "best answer".
And happy coding!
