Hi, I am struggling to find why I am getting this error: "SyntaxError: Unexpected token {"

I think I have closed all my brackets, and even opened it in Sublime with no avail. Any help would be appreciated!


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 if (choice1 === "scissors" {

                if (choice2 === "rock") {
                    return "rock wins";
                } else {
                    return "scissors wins";
                }
            }
        };
compare(userChoice, computerChoice);

@richjdsmith,

Have a close look at

} else if (choice1 === "scissors" {

AND

Please read

and concentrate on:

  • the execution of the compare function (keeping in mind that the return statement is used )
