Sick and tired of your friends beating your scores on 2048? One University of Calgary professor may have the solution.

Cecil Quigley recently introduced a new class to teach students how to enrich their 2048 experience and feel superior to their friends.

Quigley started the course to help students finish the game and get back to reality.
