Factors and Multiples Game - prep for Factoring!

I saw this tweet this morning ...
I decided to check out the game!  LOVE it for a bit of fun with factors and multiples!  Here's my first result ...


It would be fun to do this with students ... then post different chains around the room, have students analyze moves, suggest different patterns. What could I have done differently in the chain above to increase the number of links?

Use the activity BEFORE factoring polynomials to improve thinking about possible factors!
