Expected an identifier and instead saw 'else'.
Missing ";" before statement

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"}
}
};

You may remove that semi-colon. It messes with the if statement (which it terminates).

Thank you! That fixed it.
