    There’s something wonderfully, addictively frustrating about Threes, the award-winning game that has an award-winning imitator (looking at you, 2048) is now available to play in a browser-based version on the desktop.

    For those of you who are smugly looking at Threes, bringing tons of wins from 2048 under your belt, do not be fooled. Threes is a much harder game and requires a lot more strategy to reach the higher numbers.
