Why does it say that my answer is worng?

It tells me: " Something is incorrect. Check that you wrote an if statement inside the method. Check that you're using dot notation. Are you using the this keyword?".

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

1 Answer

The last question is the one you are getting wrong: "Are you using the this keyword?". In your if condition, you have:

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

When you should have:

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