What's wrong with my code? Plz help! (SyntaxError: Unexpected token else)


#1

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

@arcninja56670,

You are making a mess of the usage of closing curly-brackets-}

Look at the build of the IF ELSE=IF statement structure....

Please read
http://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/559dcb4be39efe550f00006b
and concentrate on:

  • the creation of the compare function
  • the truth-table
  • the build of the IF ELSE-IF statement structure as part of the compare FUNCTION-BODY
  • the execution of the compare function (keeping in mind that the return statement is used )
