Watch out from where the next several tiles will emerge and how you will match them up without wasting moves and filling the playing arena.

Stick to the Corners: Like most puzzle games, sticking to the corner is the ultimate game plan for '2048.' To gain high scores and tiles of large figure, push tiles to one corner.
