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

The height of each bucket represents time, which marches on without end. The pipes and hoses represent effort. The bigger the pipe, the faster the bucket is filled.

But what does the volume of each bucket represent? The number of features that are shipped?
