SyntaxError: Unexpected token {
I have read through my code several times now and I am stil unable to find the error, aside from the other issue where I'm unsure how to call the functions in this instance

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 (chocse1 === "scissors") {
        if (choice2 === "rock") {
            return "rock wins";
        }
        else {
            return "scissors wins"
        }
    }
}

Something here looks different

Fixed it, thanks.
Think you could give me a hint on how to call the functions?
EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm still getting the 'Unexpected token {' message

else (chocse1 === "scissors") {

This line had 2 issues. I think you fixed the spelling issue but the other problem has to do with else statement syntax. An else statement doesn't take a condition. An else if statement does. So you can either remove the (choice1==="scissors") or change the else to an else if.

To call a function, write the name of the function followed by the parameters. The parameters should be inside a set of parentheses.

Ex:

functionName(parameter1, parameter2, parameter3);
