Hi, I'm having issues with 8/9. I really don't get what I'm doing wrong

"SyntaxError: Unexpected token {"

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 (choice1 === "scissors") {
        if (choice2 === "rock") {
            return "rock wins";
        }
        else {
            return "scissors win";
        }
    }
};

You can't give an else a condition. What word can you add to else that would allow (choice1 === "scissors") to be evaluated?

Thanks very much, the code seems to work fine now.
