Update- I was able to get it count but I do not know why I did what I did except that is how it was done in Activity 12.
When I completed activity 12 I saw that the var mouseMoveCount = 0 block did not use a sprite.x
So I went aha I bet I should not have used that code (sprite.x renamed clicks) in the purple non var block with a sprite.x changed to clicks.x = sprite.x changed to clicks.x +1. I took the sprite.x named clicks out and just typed in clicks and it worked.
So the million dollar question is when do you use a sprite.x in a orange math-numbers block and when do you just type in the name of the variable in a orange math-numbers block?
I have a feeling this is a very important concept that is totally over my head until someone nice can explain it to me.
