I keep getting this message "SyntaxError: Unexpected token '{'. Parse error."


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 wins";
        }
        
    }
};

console.log(compare(userChoice,computerChoice));

must be just else {
