Taxman

I recently found a very simple, yet challenging game called Taxman. The principle is pretty simple:

- you get a grid of numbers from 1 to X (min. 20 usually)
- when you take a number, the taxman gets all the remaining factors of that number
- the picked number must give the taxman at least one new number.
- when you can't move any more, the taxman gets all the remaining numbers
- the goal is to collect more then Taxman (the sum of picked numbers)
