Threes

Goldenstar Games, Mobile

I have a new mobile gaming addiction that I wanted to share with everyone. It’s called Threes.

I’m playing Threes on my iPad and is a universal app so will work for your iPhone as well. It is also available on Android devices.

The basic and very simple design behind Threes is to simply match items in multiples of three. You slide the panel of numbers to create threes or multiples of threes. Ones and Two panels you can smoosh together to make 3. You can combine two three panels to make six. and so on. You shift the tiles around until you run out of moves.

It’s kind of hard to explain but trust me if you give it a try you will get it. And then you will never stop playing. In fact, I paused writing this to take this screenshot of the game and lost 15 minutes as I started playing! I did take a screenshot eventually.

I found this animated gif showing how the game works on the developer’s site so this might help you visualize if my description made no sense.

A fun little puzzler I like to pull out when I have a few minutes. I’ve been playing it a lot on our commute into work (Merric drives. I’m the passenger.) I find it super amusing. If you pick it up or already play it let me know how you like it!

    The best one I’ve seen is with Doctor Who, with each match progressing you to the next generation of the Doctor.
