I don’t often play games on my iOS devices—they’re a bit too casual for my liking. The games that I  do play are almost always puzzle-based: Letterpress and Words with Friends, among others, have stuck with me.

Lately, I’ve been having a lot of fun with “Threes!” I prefer to play it on the iPad, but it exists on all iOS devices for a mere $2. It’s not overly complicated, but at the same time, a bit tough to describe: you match up numbered tiles with other numbered tiles until you run out of room on your 4x4 tiled board. It’s incredibly simple and very addicting.

My high-score, which I proudly tweeted a couple days ago, is 3,387, which is apparently pathetic.

Also, for what it’s worth, the background music in this game is just phenomenal.
