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.

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.

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.

My beginner record is 6 seconds. And yeah, it was just random clicking.

It wasn`t photoshopped. I did a custom with 8 flags and then clicked and they were already like that. I don`t even have photoshop.

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 got a 1 second on Beginner mode once, but that really was pure luck. My record on expert is 126. Goddamn having a slow laptop that isn`t able to run any better games!

His mouse seemed to move TOO fast and jerkily o.O possibly a sped up movie in the boxes screen and normal time for the counter?

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....

reDd733, that`s obviously photoshopped. I can tell by the pixels. Nice try though.

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.

I am currently trying to beat expert... It`s hard to get something to work with without finding a mine, at least for me.

Okay thats bull both of you. How is that possibly? Did you randomly click and got lucky or did you actually do it?

And Majorchug: Nobody deserves to be showed that game. I have friends who have wasted years of their life on there. I`m glad I never started, i`d probably end up like them.

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 never took much care to look at the numbers, so I never knew there was a strategy.

How stupid of me.
