As most of you know, 2048 is basically the next Flappy Bird. Since it is also about math here is a link about some professors trying out the game. Have a go at it as well.

Sure, there's computers. Gandalf doesn't help me, but his high score is 24574958958958094854852854- he enchanted the game so you can get a higher score, but I play the original.

Its lovely game actually.
Available on play store (android) , i'm already playing it.
Its actually quite challenging to create the 2048 tile.
I have only managed to get the 1024 tile.... :)

They have computer technology in Middle Earth? Or does Gandalf help you?
