Comment:A version of the well-known Factor Captor game that involves strategy as well as being able to determine factors of numbers. Fun to play!

Comment:Pretty hard to beat, and draws on factoring skills, paying attention to greatest common factors, and even noticing abundant, deficient, and perfect numbers.
