Since launching Make Your Own 2048, our 2 hour mini course on HTML and CSS basics, we’ve been unbelievably impressed with the games you’ve made while learning.

We decided to give superlative awards to some of our favorite games! (Note that these categories are completely made up and, like this course, intended to be fun.)

Want to make your own version of the game? Take the course! It’s quick and it’s meant for complete beginners. Within 30 minutes, you’ll have your own version of the game to share.


Most Intergalactic Version



Jasmine’s Star Wars 2048 is the most intergalactic version. And it’s got a hilarious “try again” message.

Most Bumpin’ Version



Make sure you turn the volume up when you play SeeKasra’s version. It’s got an incredibly catchy beat.

Most 8-Bit Version



In Egemen’s version you watch everyone’s favorite plumber increase in resolution (and weirdness of outfit).

Most Fashionable Version



Shoes. So many shoes! Combine them in Merel’s version to get more!

Most Motivational Version



By going through powers of 3 instead of 2, the numbers get bigger faster. Sometimes it’s nice when things are easy. Try out Delodephius’ version.

Most Civically Responsible Version



Combine tiles to go through the steps involved in the process of converting a bill to a law in Zachary’s version.

Most Banana-Based Version



How is Vittoria’s version so addictive!?! You’re just making new bananas! I don’t know why this version is so fun, but it is.

Most Unintentionally Sadistic Version



A + A makes B. B + B makes C. Going from A to K just feels like it should be way easier than going from 2 to 2048, but it isn’t. Be careful with this version.

Most Novel Version



Combine short books to make longer ones! This definitely makes Chelsea’s version the most novel.

Most Likely to be Accepted for All Debts Public and Private



Combine small coins. Make bigger coins. Get a bitcoin to win. Try David’s version!.

Most Fundamental Version


Start with atoms and keep combining until you get… well, you’ll have to play Tali’s version to see.

Most Likely for the Ratio of Successive Tiles to Approach the Golden Ratio


This game is interesting since–except for 1 and 1–you aren’t allowed to combine the same tile. Give David’s version a shot if you want to learn more about the mathematically beautiful Fibonacci series.

Love what you’ve seen? This is just a fraction of the games that our amazing students have made! You can find more Udacious versions of 2048 in the discussion forum thread. Or you can take the class and make your own. Beginner’s welcome!
