On your turn, throw one die first and then another to form a number. For example, a 3 and then a 6 form the number 36.
Announce a prime factor of the number you got. For example, 36 has a factor of 2, because 36÷2 is 18. Your partner will check it in a table of prime factors. Now, find the factor on your board and put one of your chips there. If there is no empty space, your turn ends.
In this same turn you can continue announcing other factors, verifying, and marking them with chips on the board. For example, since 36 was turned into 18, a factor of 18 is another 2, because 18÷2 is 9. Make another 2 with another chip. A factor of 9 is 3. Marks the 3 with another chip ...
If you can not find more factors, your turn ends. The winner is the first player to fill a row and a column of your board.
