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.

@Ramani Aswath • 15 Mar, 2014 • 1 like Looks interesting. Rather tied up shall revert in time.
@Harshad Italiya • 16 Mar, 2014 I got maximum 512 !
@durga ch • 16 Mar, 2014 • 2 likes someone has already comeup with an AI to solve the game, neverthless when I ran it, the max tile formed is of value 1024. But ,a very very informative discussion about the algorithm is going over in stackoverflow ..

Read the logic and I had tried to play with the same strategy; but couldn't really go beyond 512 (max number on a tile).
@durga ch • 16 Mar, 2014 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
@Anoop Kumar • 16 Mar, 2014 Awesome game.. 👍
I am rusting on 256 😖
@Nayan Goenka • 21 Mar, 2014 • 1 like I got to 1024. 😛 Very close to finishing the game. Almost done but i got a bit sloppy. I m sure i will crack it today.

@Pensu • 21 Mar, 2014 • 1 like Have been trying it out for past few days. Maximum I reached till 1024. This game is going to be end of me!

Awesome....good work, man!
@Kaustubh Katdare • 25 Mar, 2014 @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.

@Ambarish Ganesh : Respect, man! I'm stuck at 1024. Did you play with any specific strategy?
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.
@Ankita Katdare • 28 Mar, 2014 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.
@Anoop Mathew • 30 Mar, 2014 Stuck at 256 ! 😳😴

Update: Got 512!
@Ankita Katdare • 30 Mar, 2014 I am stuck at 1024 + 512. Never go beyond that.
Must. Crack. It. Soon. 😎

P.S: Non-corner win 😛😁
@Anoop Mathew • 06 Apr, 2014 Next Challenge: To win a 2048 in any of the center 4 tiles ONLY! 👀👍😯😭
@Tuan Do • 14 Apr, 2014 • 3 likes TIP 1 - Do not use the up arrow key unless you have no moves left except that.
TIP 2 - Always try to keep the high valued blocks in the bottom row and try to arrange the scores on the block in the descending order from to Left to right (last row) and then right to left in the second last row in the pattern
TIP 3 - After achieving the above pattern it will be just too easy to get the 2048 tile by merging the 8 and 8 tiles to get 16, 16 and 16 tiles to get 32 and go on until you get the 2048 tile by merging the 1024 and 1024 tile.
P/S: I usually play games at https://2048.biz/ 2048, this site has the 2048 version of the game as: flappy 2048, tetris 2048, 2048 hard, 1 game....

@Ankita Katdare - thankfully I didn't require any spell. 😀 all thanks to my boring college lectures. I would play this game for 3 continues lectures daily just to pass the time, and eventually I managed to crack it.😉
@HermioneGranger • 07 Nov, 2014 • 2 likes @Anoop Mathew - here it is....I didn't reach as far as 8192, coz its a bit of a challenge in a 4×4 matrix
@HermioneGranger • 07 Nov, 2014 • 1 like My trick was to keep all the heavy numbers at one side. Be it left right top or bottom....Just avoid the centre.
