I'm not seeing what the problem is

I don't know what I'm missing, I've been staring at this for hours.

SyntaxError: Unexpected token else


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";
}
};

This indicates a problem with curly braces, likely missing, but also could mean extra. Check all your braces and make sure that every block has an opening and closing brace.

else if (choice1 === "rock"){
  if (choice2 === "scissors"){
    return "rock wins";
}else{
    return "paper wins";
} else                      // this is where the error is raised

Missing brace above. The segment below this one is also missing one in the same place.

    else if () {
        if () {

        } else {

        }
    }
    else if ...

Thank you! I found it!
