I don't know what's wrong with this code, it says SyntaxError: Unexpected token '{'. Parse error.
But I can't find an extra bracket at all, please help!

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!"
    }
    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 wins"
        }
    }
}
compare (userChoice, computerChoice)

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