GOAL

The player who rolls the cubes must set a Goal by transferring the cube(s) of the Goal from Resources to the Goal section of the playing mat.

A Goal consists of at least one and at most three digit cubes that form an expression that names a whole number.

If more than one cube is used to set the Goal, the way the cubes are placed in the Goal determines the Goal's value. The following are the only legal configurations for the Goal.
