Keep getting syntax error expected "{"


var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");


var computerChoice = Math.random();
if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
	computerChoice = "rock";
} 
else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
	computerChoice = "paper";
} 
else {
	computerChoice = "scissors";
} 
console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);
var compare = function(choice1, choice2);

{   if(choice1 === choice2) {
        return "The result is a tie!";
    }
    else if(choice1 === "rock") {
        if(choice2 === "scissors") {
            return "rock wins";
        }
        else {
            return "paper wins";
        }
    }
    else if(choice1 === "paper") {

            return "rock wins";
        }

you need to remove { from the line. put a semicolon at the end.

Here's my code and it worked for me:
var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();

if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice < 0.67) {
computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
computerChoice = "scissors";
};
