    My goodness this is terribly addictive. Best score is right over 4000 and I've only got to the 256 and a 128 right next to it. It's not like I wanted to study for my two exams tomorrow anyways...

    It seems like the more I try to strategize the worse I do.

    You'd think so, but I consistently get way farther in the original game :rofl:

    I've gotten to like 3500 just going up-right-down-left-etc. Stops working eventually, but when a lot of the numbers are the same not a lot of strategy is really needed. When they get big it gets hard as .... though.

    This is ridiculously addictive. I love brain games like this that are simple, but challenging.

    I am so f-u-c-k-ing glad I had my Java certification this morning and not, say, in a week. I would've tanked completely.

    OK. Enough distractions. Back to the game :lol:

    I'd like to thank this game, along with Dark Souls 2, for effectively destroying my life the past few days. :lol:

    I've found the two combos that work best are: left, up, left, down as well as left, down, right, up, then repeat. Both have those have gotten me to a 256 tile in a matter of seconds but they will eventually lead to a lost game it used over and over

    I had an argument with my wife the other day, a major part of it being how much time she spends playing games on her iPad.

    Then yesterday, I see this thread.

    Cue her getting home from work at five fifteen, dinner isn't cooked, the house is a mess and all I can say is "I've been playing that game I told you about."

    I got a lot of shit that night.

    I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!

    That's why I went Cpt. Kirk all over it, cheated and won! Yeah, in your face, game!




    Who am I kidding, it's a hollow victory...

    I finally beat it! I finally found a pretty solid strategy:

    With your highest valued square in the bottom left, you stack them on the left side in descending values. As you build them up on the right side, you can eventually collapse them down, build a stack back up, and repeat!

    After a few days of not getting very far, I feel very accomplished. :lol:

    Grats! :hbang:

    Yeah, definitely build into a corner. You can pretty much spam left left left up up up etc with the occasional right when you get stuck (just make sure the top row is full and you keep the high tile in the corner!) and you're most of the way there.

    I didn't run into many problems so long as I kept the left column full. It didn't really take much effort to keep them in order by size either, it seemed. :lol:

    Just for kicks, I kept playing to see how far I could get, and I made it just under 33000. I had a 1024 on the board, and I was starting to think I was going to get a second 2048, but I got kinda sloppy and lost it.
