Threes! [$2.99] has been glued to the top of its charts since release, and for good reason. It's an absolutely fantastic game, that has been ridiculously popular in our forums. Forum members have been sharing strategies, deconstructing the game, and even building bots that play it. It's been an incredibly phenomenon to watch unfold, and one I'm sure developers Greg Wohlwend and Asher Vollmer couldn't have possibly predicted when they were originally coming up with concepts for the game.

If you don't have it yet, you really should get it. If you do have it, rush on over to the App Store and download the latest update if your phone hasn't automatically grabbed it yet. It's got two major quality of life improvements for serial Threes! players. First off, you can skip signing your name at the end of every game, to get right back in to your Threes! combining action. Additionally, a "+" now appears next to the upcoming card if it's going to be more than three.

The "+" is going to be awesome, as previously when a white card was up next you hoped it was a three, but it could be a bunch of different numbers that can really mess up your board state. The new "+" display will hopefully make late game Threes! a little less frustrating as now players will know for sure if they're getting a one, a two, a three, or something more than that.

    I know it's just coincidence but it seems more difficult to get high matches now. I've not gotten past 192 high card today.

    They didn't fix that dang signing problem 🙁
    I hate having to sign after each loss. Just want to mash replay. Damn that sux

      It's fixed with the update, but disabled by default. Swipe over to the options screen after your game and turn it off.

    Is there a rule where the next card will appear on the board? Just when I thought I figured it out, it seems to appear in a different than expected.

      Your next card appears on the edge you swiped from, in a random open position.
