Have You Played 2048: Doctor Who Edition?

By now, many of you have seen the online brain teasing, time wasting, logic puzzle that is 2048. Even more of you have likely seen a version of it on your mobile device of choice. 

‘Tis a simple thing – move the tiles on the board with your arrow keys, combining like numbers. When two are joined, the tile becomes their sum. So 2 + 2 = 4, 4 + 4 = 8, 8 + 8 = 16, and so on. Keep moving tiles and combining numbers higher and higher until your whole board is full.

Simple yet addictive! The game taps into your logic centers as you plot the strategy you need to keep putting matching tiles together.

The folks at Us vs Th3m have now Whovian-ised the game!

When two of the same Doctor combine, they become the next Doctor! Two First Doctors become the Second, two Second Doctors become the Third Doctor, and so on…


The Blinovitch Limitation Effect at work perhaps?

See which Doctor you can get to!

This writer has only personally gotten to the Ninth Doctor…

About the Author


Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.

  4. You can try it too at , I love it!

  5. It is a bit creepy that my post about this ( is shown to me (and a friend) with a higher search rank on Google than this one, even though I indirectly learned about the game through this side and you are the proper source for these kind of things…

    On the topic in general and if anyone is interested: I managed to get to the Eleventh Doctor three times by now, but I mostly only get to Nine or Ten.
