Writing if statement inside method calling local variable.

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

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

Your code is actually perfectly correct, but the code challenge is very dumb and does not see that this.isTurn is the same thing as this.isTurn == true. Try the first condition (this.isTurn) and it should pass!
