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";
    }}
}

@leealexandercash,
You have to be carefull with the usage of semi-colon's-;
as in your Javascript a semi-colon-; is an End-of-Statement indicator....

else if (choice1 === "rock");
