    As soon as I realised what this was, I knew I was going to waste so much time on it.

    Damn you rj.

    Damnit, why did you have to show this.
    On the other hand, this gives me something to do during boring lectures.

    the best "strat" I found is that you just stick your big numbers on one side and then do all the combining with the other three keys
    this way you stay alive for a while,but i always mess up when i accidentaly press some other key and all the big numbers get with the rest of em,so i lose in 5 turns

    That doesn't yield much flexibility though

    Edit: My class - 40% listening, 20% playing this, 40% doing something else

    By doing that, you limit the availability on the sides, and you're basically screwed if it forms a perfect rectangle. Just like in speedsolving, I never really stick to rules like that, I just do whatever seems fit, like blockbuilding. What is your actual score?

    i just told you,are you saying i am lying?If you try to get a good score with the method, im sure you could.
    did you pass the game?You are right about the rectangle thing though,i am used to having a method of doing something
    and tried to make one up,i didn't say hey this is THE BEST METHOD USE THIS
    i said its the best method i've found
    btw pb in points is 11760

    I got so close... All the pieces were there, just in positions that made it difficult for me to get them all together.

    Got the score to 17012. If only the 256s had been closer ;_;

    Yeah, the best strategy for me is just to pick a forbidden key, and never use it. High score is 15244. Only problem with it is that if you have to use the forbidden key, a 2 will get into the area, and then you're screwed.

    I thought I could risk using the forbidden key once.

    Score

    btw, this was first try using this method. I'm definitely going to use this more and see how far I can get.

    Finally got it, after several close attempts...
    I got lucky at the end, I was forced to use the "forbidden key" but I could still gather the big pieces :)

    What is nice is that you can go on and try to get the 4096... but I could only get an additional 512.

    Nice... 1024 is so easy to get every time but getting 2048 is so hard :(
