object.js
const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){
        // write code here.

    }
}

Fabiola Barrientos you are pretty close. You want your method to refer to the object that is invoking it and you'll want to do that by referring to this.isTurn instead of explicitly saying player1.isTurn. See below:

change

if(player1.isTurn === true){
}

to:

if(this.isTurn === true){
}
