    Stumbled upon this totally addictive game. Trust me, it does not look addictive but I bet a few moves into the game and you would have that 'never give up' attitude kick in. I've just spent last 15 minutes trying to get 2048; but couldn't go beyond 256 :(. I'm starting this discussion to get opinions, tips and tricks on how to win 2048 game.

    All you need is the arrow keys of your keyboard to move the tiles. When two tiles having similar number touch each other; they add-up.

    The max I reached was 512 too, but i felt that was only due to my inability to see through the steps in advance.. I followed a logic such as, when I have a tile valued x, I leave it there and start making tile valued x/2, and so on and add then as i proceed the game

    @Ambarish Ganesh : Respect, man! I'm stuck at 1024. Did you play with any specific strategy?

    I noticed that if I keep all the big numbers at the bottom (left or right), I can get to 1024 easily. But if you use 'UP' moves a lot; you'll end up at about 512 and the game will be over soon.

    Didn't employ any different strategy. The only one was - keeping the big numbers (128 and onwards) at any specific corner for as long as I can.

    I believe I simply got lucky in this game. :) Played it 10-15 times more since this, haven't been able to reach 2048 again. 1024 is the sweet spot I hit maximum.
    People have actually developed some algorithms for this game on their blogs. Referring them all now.

    Dots got more challenging after the latest updates. I gave up playing dots about a month ago. It wastes too much of time. :(

    It doesn't actually matter if you use or don't UP moves. However if you are stacking them in corner array fashion, you will have to lose one move. Depending on the corner you choose, you avoid one movement. Here I avoided UP moves and stacked numbers in descending order in snake fashion.

    With 6 attempts I reached 1024 last night and then it was 'game over' :(
    The only trick I used was putting all the blocks at the bottom of the square. If you never let the biggest addition block leave the last row, you'll reach 1024 very easily.
