2048 according to the professors

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.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

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

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.
