FFF - Navigate the numbers in Blockade. Can you clear the entire board?

Kinda fun, I managed to get 52 after a few tries.

Cool game. Seconding the wish for an iPod/iPhone app

I really really wish you could see more than the surrounding eight tiles.

Difficult, but fun.

Half memory-based, half blind luck.

Although it would be nice if the games weren't occasionally (often?) literally impossible to win.

to all the people wanting an iphone app - can't you just load up the page in your iphone and play it there?

what does it mean when the board moves closer, or further away?

mrgoldenbrown, if you have an ipod touch, then you can only use a browser in wifi areas. More importantly, the ipod/iphone doesn't support flash.

Woot! 60.

A lot of luck in this, it's pretty easy to get into a 4-6 step blind alley and never be able to get out.

Goddamn, just once I want to get to sleep before midnight!

Strategies:
Try to move diagonally so you can escape more easily
Use up 5s, 7s, and 9s first, as you can't double-down off of them.
save your 1s, 2s, 4s (they have three opportunities to play, and are in the bottom half for the Larger-than category)

then again, I only played a handful of games and got a stellar score of 33~
