Threes - game

Threes (free) … a game similar to 2048 but with a little bit of quirk.

It’s a little more difficult than 2048 for me.

My high score is currently 23,244.

That’s because 2048 was an inferior clone of Threes (put out about a month after Threes debuted on the App Store). Unfortunately people seemed to vastly prefer “inferior but free (with ads)” to paying a few bucks for a phone app, so 2048 became more widely known.


A score with very few three’s in it means it’s not a very good score, right?

And I’m in the camp of “free (with ads)” over “pay now before you see if you like it”.

If it wasn’t posted about on the AO (or, now, GoA) there’s no way I would’ve heard about it.

I only learned about this one because I have a brother who I see at Christmas…which was in June this year.

I have played a lot of 2048 (a lot!). Haven’t played in a while. My biggest tile was the 32,768 tile. In an online version with undo allowed, I got the 131072 tile. One of my favorite “accomplishments” was getting 4 1028 tiles lined up on the bottom row at once. It’s pretty tricky to achieve. I’ve also done 3 2048s next to each other. For any devotees, try those challenges.

I know 2048 was derived from 3s, but I never tried it.
