    Hah, after I showed Minsweeper to my dad, he played it for hours every few days...

    A lot of that was luck because 1/2 the time it`s not possible to solve it with what you have.

    Props to him on thinking/clicking fast though. My best time is something like 150, not that I was going for a record.

    I play this game alot. Beginner my record is 9 seconds, Intermetiate is 199, and expert is somthing around 500. I dont really go fast, I just use the startegy. The game always gives you a way to figure it out. Only 6 out of every 100 games played is there a part where you must guess. Its like a big logic puzzle.

    RetroNess, You can easily get victory in 0-1 seconds by pure luck assuming the mines are far apart from each other, so 1 click will will the game. ..

    But honestly, my best score for beginner was 9 seconds and it was by pure luck I was able to maintain that speed of clicking. I have no idea how to think that fast AND maintain that speed for 39 (37) seconds....

    SPOILER!!!
    #######################
    This Win XP cheat can be used to impress your friends with. Close all applications, then open Minesweeper, type xyzzy, then hold down the Shift key for a second. Now when you move your mouse over the cells, you will see either a white or black pixel in the top left of your desktop... white means no mine, black means mine (you might adjust your wallpaper to see this). Works like a charm...

    i play minesweeper alot and am maybe half that speed tops, though i play the maximum sized field (same height as expert but wider) with 200 mines. each number tells you how many mines are in the cells touching it. simple.

    that game is f***in addicting. always frustrates me though cause it has a lot of strategy, but always comes down to a choice that is complete chance. 50/50/90: on a 50/50 chance you will get it wrong 90 percent of the time.

    To go that fast on expert I would mis-click within the first 15 seconds, if even that.. no way I could do that even if I could think fast enough.
