2048

Got nothing to do for a few hours? Are you sure? Because this can be a massive timesink.

2048 is a game played on a 4x4 grid. Two squares have numbers in them. You use the arrow keys to move all numbers that can be moved in that direction as far as they can go. (Numbers that can't are numbers that are against an edge in that direction anyway, and unequal numbers that have that number next to them in that direction.) Each time you move the numbers, a random empty square is filled with another number. When a number runs into a number that is equal to it, the blocks combine into one with the combined value of both.

The objective is to make a 2048 block. The lose condition is if all squares are filled and you can't combine any.

Have fun!

this is exactly like the game threes with the twist that you can automatically add numbers together as long as they match. with threes, you have to first add 1+2 in some cases, but the rules are still the same that you can only add numbers if they match

That is one fun game. My 9 year old is way better at it than me, though, so that's a little humbling....

Another small difference is that in Threes the tiles only slide one square with each move, whereas in 2048 (which apparently is a clone of something called 1024) pieces will move as far as they can, including one combination (but a piece resulting from a combination won't recombine in the same turn). It's for that reason that I kind of prefer the feel of 2048 (ethics aside).

Of course, all these games are eclipsed by DOGE2048.

I've finished the original, but not the doge version. I want to see the final stage of doge. Sure, I could just check the source, but I want to earn it.
