Adding Score - Help?


What I've been doing is I've added a scoring system to the Rock Paper Scissors game (And repeat the game up to three times), but I've been getting some nasty syntax errors I can't seem to solve. Would anybody be as kind to help me out here?

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 computerPoints = 0;

var humanPoints = 0;

var compare = function(choice1, choice2) {
    if (choice1 === choice2)
        return "The result is a tie! Try again!"
    else if (choice1 === "rock")
        if (choice2 === "scissors")
            return "Rock wins."
            return "You win! (+1 point)"
            humanPoints += 1
            return "Paper wins."
            return "Sorry to see you lose, try again!(+1 Computer points)"
            computerPoints += 1
    else if (choice1 === "paper") 
        if (choice2 === "rock")
            return "Paper wins"
            return "Wow! You win! (+1 Point!)"
            humanPoints += 1
            return "Scissors wins"
            return "Looks like you got cut up.. Maybe if you tried again?.. (+1 Computer Points)"
            computerPoints += 1
    else if (choice1 === "scissors")
        if (choice2 === "rock")
            return "Rock wins"
            return "Dang... Try again. (+1 Computer Points)"
            computerPoints += 1
            return "Scissors wins"
            return "Wow! You won! Try to play again! (+1 Point!)"
            humanPoints += 1

compare(userChoice, computerChoice)

Thank yall, and good Karma to those who help.


The first thing that I can see is that you keep in mind that you can only omit the {} if your condition only targets the very next statement. As you often have 2 statements after if the else is treated as not connected. Wrote a longer post about this over here:
