I can get to the 2048 square pretty easily, my method requires me keeping my largest-valued square anchored to a corner. Can even get to 4096 every now and then.

Mr Rotten has done 4096 tile at least twice. I've yet to get it but been quite close (topped at 33,688 points). I don't pos...

Edit... Done. No porky pies here guys.

I've topped out at 30,000 and now to bored to go further.

214 = 16384 and 215 = 32768. I think you're telling porkies. :lol:

Let x = y
Multiply both sides by x to give x^2 = xy
Subtract y^2 from both sides to give x^2-y^2 = xy- y^2
Factorize to give (x+y) (x-y) = y(x-y)
Divide both sides by (x-y) to give x+y = y
As x = y substitute x for y to give x+x = x
Divide both sides by x to give two = one :scratchhead:

I think your keyboard is broken.

If x=y then x-y=0 and then dividing by 0 cannot be done.
