|1.6 The Factor "10 Game"
How to play the
Two players compete for high score by
picking numbers from a screen which are then added to their score.
There is a catch though. Whenever Player A picks a number, the total of
every factor of that number still showing on the screen is added to the
opponent's score. When the opponent, Player B, chooses a number, that
number is added to his/her score, but Player A gets the total of all
remaining factors of the number B chose. For example, if A chooses 25,
then B gets 1 and 5 (since they are factors of 25). At this point A has
25 points and B has 6. And now it is B's turn to go. The chosen numbers
are removed from the screen.
