O game 2048 is among the biggest successes when it comes to thinking games. However, many people still have no idea how to win it in a practical way: there are people who can start but, when they get to the end, they start to have an impact and feel blocked.
There are even those who think it’s practically impossible to win. Is it really that? Well, the game can be beat, but you’re going to need some sense of your time for that. And, of course, just moving the pieces in a senseless direction won’t make you win.
A technique that is well known by those who have been champions of this game is about the side technique. In today’s article, MEUPCNET prepared a complete guide that will help you understand a little better about how the sides technique works. So, if you want to know more about it, just keep reading here with us because we have a complete guide.
Technique of the sides in the 2048
In this game, it is necessary to form pairs of 2 plus 2, which makes four, and four plus four, which makes 8. And so on until you reach the maximum value, which is around 2048.
However, if you dart without understanding anything, you’ll be showing too many numbers and they won’t be able to connect. That’s why it’s important that you leave only the largest numbers that can be connected to the one your form allows on one side, and the smaller ones on the other.
That way, whenever you form a large number on the smaller side, you have to send that large number to the other side, always leaving the smaller side with numbers that have a maximum of only 8.
Always leave the big numbers on the left side and avoid moving towards the right because it will make the big ones leave the place. When leaving the big ones on the left side, make movements only to the left (to join the small numbers to the large ones), paw up and down.
Ports like Tecno Notícias or Tecnoblog teach you how to win this game just by move from top to bottom or side to side. But just doing these random moves can end up locking you in the game and you’ll never be able to win this way.
Why making random moves will lock you in?
If you leave the big numbers only on the left side without taking them out of there, it will guarantee that you will have all the rest of the space to move the small numbers and make bigger numbers so that they are integrated with those.
But, if you are, for example, performing random moves, a 16 goes next to a 64 next to a 32 and so on, without so many alternatives to join the spaces. That way, if you don’t have as many options to join the spaces, the chances of losing the game due to lack of places to open new numbers will increase.
Why does this strategy work and is it the only one you can use to win? The number only joins with another number that is its equal to make the sum. That way, if you leave the small ones to one side, they are more likely to have more similar numbers and come together. So it’s easier for you to combine 2 with 2, 4 with 4. And whenever you form a number that is above 64, you have to move it to the left because that also makes it easier for another number of 64 to come together and take up less space through the summation. Whenever one number joins another, you have one more move alternative. But if you can’t put together similar numbers, because they’re too mixed up and not each one next to each other, you’ll be occupying more and more squares as you move and you won’t be able to move anymore, reaching Game Over.
