2048- A Game Of Wits

When it comes to the most popular video games of all time, a few that dominate the list are super Mario, claw, contra, gi joe, to name a few. The list is so long that one article is not enough to cover all of them. 

This is enough to prove that video games continue to be popular among the masses even with the advent of social media, where everything is available on your smartphones. 

However, the one that has grabbed many eyeballs since its inception is 2048, which can be considered a game of wits, because it is going to be managed by artificial intelligence. 

It has been theorized by experts that artificial intelligence is going to dominate the world in the coming decade, which has already begun with the arrival of 2020. What social media was to 2010, artificial intelligence will be for 2020-2030. 

 What is 2048? 

As mentioned, it is a game of wits where you have to match the given tiles in a sequential manner depending on the numbers given and combine them to create an enormous number of tiles. 

The game is over when there are no moves left and the board is also full. Strategic planning is a prerequisite for to reach the tile containing 2048 and once you do so, you are deemed the winner, a little tougher than 2048 cupcakes. 

Also, you need to take care of certain things when playing 2048 on your mobile and they are as follows: 

  1. First of all you have to understand and analyze the board and plan your moves accordingly 
  2. Concentrate on the smaller tiles first so as to avoid complicated positions and then move on to the larger ones 
  3. Start from the corner and keep going in the same direction without coming in the middle and then combine others in a sequence 
  4. Whenever stuck up, slow down and work out a way with patience
