This game is super addicting and it's even available for your phone!

Here is the web link to the game.

Post your best scores here cause I am feeling mildly competitive.

Currently I have 6824

I am so hooked on this game. Just this past Sunday I started playing, and I already have a problem.

My high score is the result of a fluke run I went on once where I hit 13868. I've been chasing that high ever since. Normal scores are anywhere between 7000 and 9000.

Why would you do this to me Nos? I never wanted to find a game as casually addicting as Candy Crush, and this one doesn't even have a paywall to make me stop playing in disgust. I'll see you guys later, I have a pathetic high score of 4000 and something to beat. There goes the rest of my day.

*sighs exasperatedly and goes back to playing 2048*

Wait, the high score isn't the highest number you got on the board?
I got 12988, and I got to 1024!

I think it just adds the tiles you used up. I put two 2 tiles together and got a score of 4, then I did it again and got 8. I put the two 4 tiles together and got a score of 16.

So I gave the game a shot. Got to 6740 on my first try. Now to try and top that.

I wonder which number will be higher, my score, or the number of hours I waste on this.

Recently got up to 11784. So yay~ improvement. I really like this game because it's so easy. And I don't know why (ADD anyone?), but when I watch tv, or listen to music, or just do generally anything that doesn't involve my hands; I have to do something with my hands otherwise I get kinda restless [obligatory masturbation joke here]. So cellphone games are really useful to me.

I also play tons of Sudoku. Specifically the one by moonrabbit. Its so awesome, you even get to level up. I'm a level 62 currently. There's also achievements and I am a sucker for achievements.

Dear Vagina-Haver,
I would prefer it if you ceased your writing career, and instead focused on suicide.

The closest I got was forming two 512 cubes, but I got overwhelmed about 3 steps shorter of putting them together. I don't remember my score, I think it was between 7 and 9 thousand, but not over 9000.

Damn you, Kakarot.


And that was only my third try, but now that I got the hang of the game it's time to put it away. I'll keep the link because what I really loved about the game (besides the mental challenge angle) is that there's no time limit, so you can just make a couple of moves and then go do some stuff and it will stay in place. I'll just try not to get too distracted and maybe that way I'll get to play it in between tasks while at work.

My highest score is in the 4000+ range, but my usual score is in the 2000+ range. It's frustratingly addictive, I sat down on the floor to play one round to test it, then suddenly I realize it's been an hour and my legs have gone to sleep.
