Goodbye Productivity: Twenty Is The New Threes

Threes meets Tetris

Just when you thought it was safe to go back onto the Internet, some joker launches a new super simple, ultra addictive puzzle game. For free. What a monster.

Twenty has more than a passing resemblance to Threes, and it's similar in that you combine numbered cards in a grid to create bigger numbers without running out of space. However, numbers in Twenty are combined by dragging them freely around that grid, and new lines appear at the bottom of the screen every time you hit a time limit or run out of moves. In this way, it shifts the focus away from careful strategy and towards Tetris-like reflexive decision-making. It's a good time.

It's also a hard time. The goal is to reach 20 on at least one of your cards, which sounds easy enough. But yeah, here I am, still clicking away...

There are iOS and Android versions, if you’re that way inclined, which are also free. The former includes additional game modes in case the vanilla game isn’t devilish enough for you. Pro tip: don’t make the same mistake I did and assume numbers must be dropped on top of each other to count. Only when you embrace the full freedom of movement that Twenty allows will your mind truly be open.

So say goodbye to your To Do List for the day and give it a shot. The sooner you begin, the sooner you can rub my nose in the fact you hit 20 before me.
