Twenty (the game) - Anyone
Quote | Reply
The first iOS game I spent a considerable amount of time playing was 2048. It's been removed from my phone because I need a minimum amount of sleep.





Then my daughter suggested 1010. Stupid effing game. I was within 400 points of beating her high score, with a fairly clear board, and BAM three 3x3s in a row. 29746 points, game over. It's been banned from my phone in protest.





Was at HS graduation last week and watched a teenage girl playing a different game - Twenty. Her high score was "20x13" (I'm still not entirely sure what that means). How hard could it be?




What the fuck. I've made it to 14 once. FOURTEEN. It doesn't seem possible to get to 20, even once; there's just too much of a mess. Granted her brain is 30 years younger, but still???


Anyone tried this game yet? Thoughts?

Just tried it. Got to 14s on the first game. We'll see how subsequent games go. Another good one is Three's. Same basic idea as 2048.

Just tried it also. Got to 14 a few times. It's like Tetris. You have to think a few steps ahead. There seems to be few nuances that once you figure those out you can probably go a lot farther.

Try the game "Numb" -- same genre as these...requires math skills for adding and subtracting, so hopefully shouldn't be a problem for any of you guys.

Well since 2048 and 1010 are the only games I really play on my phone I guess I'll have to add 20.

So I've gotten to 20 a couple of times. I assume 20x3 means you built to 20 three times. That would be pretty hard, and you'd have to get lucky with some tiles.

On the other hand, I'm not getting anywhere near your score in 1010.

That's great!

My daughter got to 15 on her third try.

I'm stuck at 18. I get to 16-18 each time but can't break over the hump.

I don't like it because of the time factor. I find it stressful. I like that I can play 1010 and 2048 at my pace.

Downloaded it on Friday, just got a 20 tonight after probably two to three hours' total playing. Lots of 16, 17, 18, and a few 19 games leading up. The trick (if you want to call it that) is to not leave any mess behind. Combine everything you can and note that it only gives you a new row when you run out of moves to make, or when the timer expires. So if you build in a couple of vertical columns (say, one on each side of the board), with a free column adjacent, you will be able to make more moves, more frequently, and keep the mess down.

I've gotten to 14+ a couple of times with six or seven tiles on the board.

Finally got to 20. I thought the game was over which screwed me up on the one good game I had going.

I got hooked on 2048 Dr. Who Theme.

I'll have to give 20 a shot (and to think, I was just about to start working!).

Got up to 20x5. Needed a little luck.

Dr. Who 2048 is gone now.

I'm up to 18, now. I consistently get to at least 16. Good game!

It's pretty good, but definitely easier the more you play. I get to 20 pretty routinely, and got to 20x7 yesterday.

What does 20x7 mean? 7 rows after 20?

After you get 20, it keeps going and you continue to try to get more 20s, but you keep going from roughly the same place, i.e. you don't have to go all the way back to where you're only getting 1s and 2s and 3s, etc.

20x? means you got 20, ? times.

Just got my first 20 last night. I've gotten 3 or 4 now. Still only at 20x1.

Apparently I suck. I can get to 11x1

And I just figured out that tiles can be moved sideways even if stuff is on top of it.

How does Danny Hart sit down with balls that big?

My daughters bring these stupid games into the house. I have developed a strategy for quitting (these things always end up being an addiction problem for me). I get to an interestingly high score and then seek to leave the game in that state. For 1010 that was only 10000, but the screen coincidentally is blank but for two boxes. I did the same for 2048. Now if anyone asks about the game I can open it up on my phone, show them the current score, and then explain how I can't allow that to be messed up right now.

Now I'm trying Ballz. I was going to quit at 1000 but didn't have the willpower. 10,000 would be interesting to see, but I'm hoping to figure out a way to quit before then. The problem with Ballz is that you can cheat; there's no reason you'd have to lose.

20x4

Took me a while, but I finally got my strategy down. 3 columns, attack the connected pieces first, move everything off the bottom row, especially high numbers, then hit the rest.
