After a trip to the craft store, I noticed that the foam board I purchased was, in fact, Adams board, and not Elmer's .. The paper backing came right off without any trouble. I wish all of them were this easy.
Or was it just me ?

I've gotten some Adams Readiboard where the paper came right off no problem, then another batch where it doesn't. Then I learned about misting the board with isopropyl alcohol and it's so easy to remove! Give it a try.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I've always been able to peel it right off without doing anything special to it. 1 great big sheet usually. Sometimes a corner would tear but not always.

On the Elmer's, I have worked so long on the paper to be very frustrated..So, that before I leave the craft store I will at least peel back a small corner of the board or try just to make sure it will peel off easily.
But it will be Adams ..

In year's past the paper on the Adams board would come off in one piece pretty easily. Maybe it would tear occasionally, but it would still come off no problem.

The new stuff is much more akin to some of the black/grey foam board or Elmers. The paper is brighter/whiter but it is much more difficult to get off. I'm not sure if they changed the glue, but the paper is definitely different.

So far I've had good luck with just wetting the paper (thoroughly), allowing it to dry a little, and peeling it off. It comes off in pieces but it does work.

Skydiver,

I do the same thing at the Dollar Tree store. I check and peel back some of the paper on their foam board before I purchase it to ensure that the paper will peel easily. The foam board with the black paper seem to peel easier than the white paper type.
