Why is my if statement written incorrectly?

I need my if statement to check if it is the player's turn, how have I written the condition incorrectly?

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

The code inside a class should never refer to an instance of that class by name. Instead, use the keyword "this".

That change alone will pass the challenge, but you also don't need to ever compare a logic variable to "true".
Just test the variable directly:

      if (this.isTurn) {   // this does the same as "this.isTurn === true"
