Build "Rock, Paper, Scissors" 7/9

On exercise 6/9, my code works fine. Now that i am on 7/9, i get the error message "SyntaxError: expected expression, got keyword 'else'". I don't see anything wrong with my code. Appreciate the help! Thanks!


/*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") {
        if (choice2 === "rock") {
            return "paper wins";
        }
    }
    else {
        return "scissors wins";
    }
};

else if (...) {
    if (...) {

    } else {

    }
}
else if (...) {
    if (...) {

    } else {

    }
}

Notice the pattern? Where we write the closing braces is critical.
