Yes, you can actually beat Threes!, and someone did it this past week. They even got recognition for the feat from the game’s creator.
Threes! is a brilliant mobile game that once chewed up a lot of my free time. Arguably the inspiration for (copycat) 2048, Threes! is a game about sliding and combining numbers. If you run out of moves, the game is over.
I thought the game sort of went on forever, and I’ll be the first to admit that I was never really good enough to challenge better players when it came to building higher scores. I was wrong. A lot of us were probably wrong. Threes! has an ending, and it, no joke, took 3.33 years for it to happen. Here’s one of the game’s creators on Twitter.

Right, so @ThreesPorn completed the feat. Here’s their video of that final moment.
I’m installing Threes! again. Right now. Wish me luck.
