<PLEASE USE THIS TEMPLATE TO HELP YOU CREATE A GREAT POST!>

I think I’ve royally screwed up the brackets here. Can anyone help me figure out how many horrible mistakes I’ve made?

SyntaxError: Unexpected token {

<What do you expect to happen instead?>

```

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”;}

Your else syntax is incorrect…
return should be in the curly brackets

Remember your syntax should look like this:

if (condition) {
  // do something
}
else if (condition) {
  if (condition) {
    // do something 
  } 
  else {
    // do something else
  }
