2048 is a single-player sliding tile puzzle game developed by Gabriele Cirulli. Merge tiles with the same power of 2 to get the total sum. The goal is to keep merging tiles this way until you reach 2048!

My kids enjoy the simple challenge of merging the numbers to clear space and stay alive. It’s great to see them figure out strategies to merge bigger and bigger numbers efficiently. They don’t realize it, but they are learning to make quick additions. There’s also a lot of geographical thinking ahead to avoid making a move that gets you stuck.

How to Play 2048

Use your arrow keys to move all the tiles in the specified direction. Every time you move, another two is spawned into the game. When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into one, doubling the numerical value. Keep sliding the tiles around until you reach your highest score. The final objective is to get one tile to reach the number 2048. Be careful to think about your movements, as the board will keep filling up each time you move! If the board fills all the way without you reaching 2048, it's game over.

What is 2048?

2048 is an open-source puzzle game with math elements where players slide numerical tiles around a grid to create larger numbers. The game took the world by storm in March 2014 when it was released, surprising the developer who made it in a weekend.

Thanks to the open-source project, many variations have been created and distributed since then. The 2048 game on this page is the original, but you can find more versions below.

Tips & Tricks

  • Focus on the edge of the grid. You want the highest number in a lovely corner for easy access.
  • Keep making the larger numbers around that corner so you can combine them when they match.
  • If you end up with the higher numbers towards the middle, you can quickly get lost with inaccessible numbers, and eventually, you will have to start a new game.
