It's OH-48 – Like 2048, But Better

2048, a simple puzzle where you merge like tiles to attempt to get to the 2048 tile, is all the rage these days.

But we wanted to improve it. And I think we have.

Play OH-48

Well, its suffice to say this has officially killed my work day!

So this is where my 11W premium dues have been going? Well, this and the assorted spread of exotic cheeses and cured camel meat. I must say, I like what you've done with the place.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

I think the Woody tile (one after Tress) is corrupted or something. It just shows up as a white box.

I'm on Chrome if that helps.

EDIT: Not Woody, the one between Tress and Woody

Woody doesn't come after Meyer? I'm a effing hopeless.

I'm terrible.  I only got to Spielman.

After a couple more tries, I got up to 5352 and Senator Tressel.

I got 7068 on my first try. Ended up with Tress and Urban (I assume they're 1024 and 512, respectively).

I beat 2048 a couple weeks ago and I thought my addiction was over. I hate y'all for making this.

Once I figured out how the game works I got 3154. Goodbye free time.

I can't get past Tress, but my boss just threatened to fire me if I don't meet today's project deadline. Decisions, decisions.....maybe just 13 or 14 more tries!

Ugh.  Wonderful.  I didn't want to do well on my finals anyways...

Dairy-fed intellect and pure, unhinged sass.

It might be cool to have a leaderboard for this game, or embarassing. I'm not sure I'll every get to the Woody tile.

i obviously have no clue what im doing, it just goes on seemingly forever until its filled and i get a "game over, youre a moron" message hehe

Got to Tressel once and that is the highest yet.  Work day has gone a lot faster without actually doing work... so distracted I actually missed lunch.

I love the game but is there a way to get it on our phones like 2048? I like to play it throughout the day but I am usually not by a computer.

Jason Priestas's picture

It should be swipable on the phone/tablet if you go to the URL.

Welp, just burned a good hour of time. I'd love it if they had a list of the icons in order that they build on the side. On occasion it'd be helpful to know what combining two pics makes, since i can't remember them all in order.

Just keep playing.  It will be ingrained in your head that AJ Hawk comes after Brutus and the Pancake Man after him.

I've played 2048 more than I care to admit.  Nice job on this version.

You guys weren't joking. That's addictive as hell.

Legitimately didn't understand the point of the game the first three times i played it. Now that i got urban...must get woody

UrbanCulture's picture

annnnnd theres a tressel before woody

And apparently an Archie after Tressel.  I haven't seen gotten there, but I've heard rumors.

Just got 22,558 ha. I've found that you don't want to swipe up if you don't have to and it's easiest if you keep your highest tile in one of the bottom corners

That's how I have been playing 2048. That's the strategy to beating the game, or so I'm told.

35880.  I was a Spielman from finding out whats after Woody.  I was hoping it was a free premium membership.

Best I can do is Tressel and two Speilmans

I've been very unproductive at work since this came out. Got to 11748 with Archie. I will beat this thing one day.

I've been to 16000 twice, but I lose focus or swipe the wrong way. There's a lot more strategy involved than I would have imagined.

I can get a Woody and an Archie at the same time, but never quite make it to the second Woody. Grr.

I hear the little blue pill takes care of that rather easily.
