The objective is to eliminate all the numbers on the board by decomposing numbers rolled by a pair of dice. A number can be decomposed using only addition. When a number cannot be eliminated, the game is over and the numbers remaining on the board are totaled to give the final score. The lowest score wins and a perfect score is zero.I have played this game with all ages, including my college students.  Everyone loves it!  It is easy to play, but more difficult to find a winning strategy.  Can you get a perfect game?
