apps. kids today.
the "official version" at http://gabrielecirulli.github.io/2048/ doesn't have an "undo" button, which seems to me to be a literal game changer.

I autoran 9007199254740992 once (Who would bother to do so more than once? It takes days.) and got a score of 161,137,240. I don't think I would ever in my life have the kind of patience to get that score by hand, so I'm calling it a victory.

Needless to say, I did not get the 9007199254740992 tile.

Is this the thread to brag about our new high scores? I just got 62092 points, with one 4096 tile and one 1024 tile.

When can I collect my check?

E: 108380 points with an 8192 and a 1024. I thought I would be happy when I got the 8192, but now I just want 16384...

This could get dangerous.

I managed to make the 4096 tile yesterday. Unfortunately nobody had a clue what I was boasting about, so I had to come here to brag about it.

Keep going. 8192 is possible.

Technically, 131072 is possible. However, I have never seen a tile beyond 16384.

E: now up to 123056 points with an 8192 and a 2048. The road to 16384 is slow.

I play Threes more than 2048 (and I've played Threes! for years), but I really don't notice numbers that would make good Threes! combos (6321?). sorry if this is a bad necro and I created my account to post here

I don't mind, but then I also don't matter...
I just finished a game of 2048 and then checked here for a new comic, this comic 1344: "Digits" is what got me started with 2048, love it. [smiley-face emoticon]

In case you haven't seen it, here's an OTTification of the 2048 game:

http://mrob.com/time/Q04B/

It's essentially the same game, but with numbers replaced by images from the Time comic, and a number of fun upgrades.

For the curious, other hotdogs (games) can be found listed in the Time wiki.
