Place Value Game

Welcome to the Place Value Game!

The goal of the Place Value Game is to create the largest possible number from the digits the computer gives you. Unfortunately, the computer will give you each digit one at a time and you won't know what the next number will be. You are not allowed to rearrange any of the digits you have already placed, so think carefully before you lock a number in place! Good luck!

You are allowed to select the:

Number of Digits - The number of digits in the number you are building.

Largest Digit - The largest number the computer is allowed to pick. (9 means that the computer can pick any number
from 0 to 9)

Number of Discards - The number of extra spaces you get. (2 means that you are allowed to throw away 2 numbers)
