2048 is a game with a simple idea - join the numbers and get to the 2048 tile.

You use your arrow keys to move the tiles. When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into one. Continue merging tiles with the aim to get the 2048 tile and the highest score you can.

Although simple to play, it's not easy to master, as you will soon find out. It's rather relaxing though and something you can play for just a few minutes at a time, providing you don't fall into the trap of "just one more go" :lol:

You can find the game here:

Thanks to @ColSonders who pointed this out to me.

Here's my highest score so far - 8036 with the largest tile I've had to date, 512.

My best so far is 7328 with my highest tile being a 512.

My mate got 2048 yesterday though and looked as though he's got it sussed in his head and could probably continue to 4096!

Cracking little game and it works really well on mobile phone browsers too!

Just got 2692 on my first go. 256 was my highest tile. Had no idea what on earth I was doing to begin with. Still don't. Is 2048 supposed to be a tile like my 256,rather than the score you need to get?

Yes @Plaxinator, 2048 is the tile to try and get. However, as that's quite hard from what I can see, high score is also what you should aim for.

It's quite addictive. I can see this being the new way to pass my lunch break!

Nice one @Martok, so far I have only managed to get a couple of 512 squares but not add them together!

Novel way of hiding your score there @ColSonders. Takes the art of redaction to a whole other level.

2048 is the year EA will finally get BF4 running without problems.

Still not managed a 4096.

Current high score is 31432 and I would post a screenshot directly for my phone but i've upgraded and now it doesn't give me the option of uploading from my gallery straight to the forums.

I'm in the same boat as Martok though with a 2048 and a 1024 in play and then struggling to keep it together.

I must be numerically challenged as I still can't get more than a 512 tile........
