My seven year old insisted she wanted to beat 2048 so I took the opportunity to show her code for the first time.

"It looks like sloppy handwriting," she said, as we cracked open js/game_manager.js

First, we changed this.startTiles from 2 to 5. Fun to see the change but this wasn't going to get her to bed any faster, so we changed the value of the new tiles from 2 to 128.

Within a couple minutes she was proudly marching over to her mother to declare that she had won the game.

Yes, it's cheating but...

It's all good. Here's the original code: https://github.com/gabrielecirulli/2048

And if you'd rather just play the game: http://gabrielecirulli.github.io/2048
