Yes, we can play bob-stones too!  Basically if you're a number cruncher, this is the game for you.  Here's how it works - you think of a number and leave clues as to how many bob-stones you're thinking of.  For anyone to reply, they must say "Bob-stone guess is..." before stating their number, just as in the game.


Example:

Bob-Stone Guess:

- number is prime
- if multiplied by a single digit number, the answer is 27
- considered "a magic number" if you're into old school tv shows



Bob-Stone Guess is.......3




Think you got it?  Let's give it a go.....


Bob-Stone Guess:

- number is composite
- when 88 is divided by this number, you end up with a day in a month, but before half the month is over
- "figure it out"

I think I'm going to need another hint.  I'm fumbling through all the tv series I know and I'm always getting prime numbers. :p

- "digits"
