In order to win the game 2048, players must maneuver numbered tiles and combine them in such a way that they form a tile with a value of 2048. Every turn adds a new tile to the board, and the only way to combine tiles is if they have the same number. The game is over as soon as all of the spaces on the board have been occupied and no additional tiles can be combined. However, competent players who build a tile with a value of 2048 can continue playing with larger numbers after the game has been advanced. Continue to play in order to hone your 2048 strategy.
