Minesweeper

Unread postby TheRedArcher » March 22nd, 2009, 3:59 am

My roommate and I went on a minesweeper rampage, each of us trying to get a faster time than the other. I am currently the winner :D but I am afraid he's going to catch up. :( So I was just wondering if we are actually really slow or really fast or just normal compared to the rest of the world. My time is 98 seconds while my roommate's is 103 and we both have an average of about 120 seconds per game.

Advanced. It would be embarrassing to have a time like that for beginner.

I've never been in a Minesweeper frenzy, though I did manage to beat beginner in two seconds. I clicked on two boxes and happen to have won. :lol:

EDIT: Sorry, I don't have any proof if it happening. I did ss it, though it never crossed my mind to keep it during my comp format.

Fastest expert mode time is 36 seconds by a guy called Kamil Muranski. He's got the best times on all modes. His actual best time was 35.702 seconds. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minesweeper_(computer_game)#Best_times

My PBs are 92 seconds for Expert (or it may be less, I forget, long time since I mineswept), about 30 something for intermediate, and I don't remember for beginner, nor do I really care for the last one :p

That will be an o'sum movie! lol

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

For some reason I'd watch that movie for the price of a student movie ticket.
