We've recently discovered the internet game Dropbox 2048, and as a result, the children and I have spent a significant amount of time trying to master the puzzle.
2048 is a puzzle game with the goal being to attain a 2048 tile within a
4x4 grid by moving tiles up, down, left, and right. Each time you make a
move, another tile spawns. When two tiles with the same number touch,
they merge into one. It takes some spacial relations skills as well as strategy. None of us have progressed past the 512 tile, although as I was reading about it this morning, it even seems possible to move past the 2048.
Try out the game here. Fair warning: it is kind of addicting. If you are a player, and are aware of some tips, please let us know !!
