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.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

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.
