Have you ever known someone for years only for them to do something that makes you question if you really ever knew them? Okay, so that feeling, but video game. Most of us at TouchArcade Towers have been playing Threes! [$2.99] for years now. It's one of my go-to games when I need to relax for a bit, so I'm always getting in a round or two on a regular basis. And yet! It seems this game was hiding a little old secret, one that seems to have taken a really long time for anyone to figure out. 3.33 years, to be precise. Brace yourself, there are spoilers ahead for something most of us probably would have never found out on our own anyway.

Did you think Threes! was an endless score chaser? Yeah, us too. But it's not. It has an ending, and someone just found it. ThreesPorn is an aptly-named Twitter account that is dedicated to all things Threes!. This evening, they found themselves on the verge of making a match they had never made before in the game. Luckily for all of us, they chose to film it. We'll just let the tweet and video speak for themselves here.

So yeah, there you have it. Threes! has an ending. A glorious, wonderful ending. A secret kept for literal years, and now we all suddenly have some homework to do, don't we? Congratulations, ThreesPorn. You truly are the best of the best!

    Whattttt... 3,33years and I still can't get past 1536

    • dancj

      87,945 for me - though I also have a score of 177,642 from when there was a temporary bug which made the game way easier.

  • Swallowtail

    Wow I didn't know so many still enjoy Threes!
    For me, some annoying bugs like 30 seconds of freeze that happens each time a game ends and a disappearance of the option for status bar kept me away some time ago :'(

    • dancj

      I never had that freeze. What device are you on? It took forever to load on my old 4s before they updated it.

      • Swallowtail

        iPhone 6s. The freeze might be coming from my 35k times of playing though.

  • Nergal

    The video won't play?

    • dancj

      It didn't work for me in the TouchArcade app, but when I looked in Safari it worked.

  • TrencH

    Didn't play for me either

  • paulkane

    Wow! I still have fond memories of being absorbed by Threes! the summer I spent on Cape Breton. πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›

  • William Fuchs

    Wait what was the number?

  • BaronMunchausen

    Video won't play...

  • TwoLiterSoda

    Wow lol that's pretty crazy. I've never gotten anywhere close to that.

  • nini

    Hate that headline, so clickbaity.

    • Qwazz Bre

      An unfortunate side of clickbait-y titles is that they usually work.

    • Shaun Musgrave

      Sorry about that. The intention behind the vagueness was less about baiting and more that I didn't want to ruin the surprise for anyone who didn't want to know. I hope you understand and appreciate that I don't usually write headlines in that sort of way. You can tell because next to no one clicks on 99% of what I write here!

  • Smelly Sock

    Big ups to that guy.

  • TheGodless

    Apparently, other people have found this out much sooner and just didn't get any coverage.

    • Shaun Musgrave

      Yeah, I've seen that now. In my defense, even the game's creators thought this was the first.
