JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Object Basics Filling Out the Play Method

Why are there no more hints to these challenges????

Cant figure out what im doing wrong. Can I have some help here?

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

      }
    }
}

Currently you are checking if players name equals players turn. That never gonna result in true, unless players name is true.

Since you need to check if its players turn you need to check for isTurn property. (if its players turn - isTurn property will be true, if its not players turn - isTurn property will be false) so your if statement should look something like this

const player1 = {
    name: 'Ashley',
    color: 'purple',
    isTurn: true,
    play: function(){
        if (this.isTurn) {
        }
    }
}

(if isTurn value will be true the if block will run, if isTurn value will be false it will not run.)
