I find it nice that some hints take up the whole expression, not just the individual words. Thumbs up, team!

This is yet another new difficult thing in German. "dran" is not a noun and therefore this phrase is really confusing. "du bist dran" sounds like "du bist krank". I want to say that if it is your turn then in German it is considered as some kind of state that you are staying in until it is not your turn any more.

I think of it like the (colloquial) "you're up," which at least around here is quite a common way to communicate this idea.

I wrote "Now your turn", which I think is correct. But it was marked wrong. What do you think?

"Now your turn" is not a complete sentence, which the German sentence is.
