    What are your best minesweeper times?

    What are your best times for beginner(8X8,10 mines), intermediate(16X16,40), and expert(16X30,99)? Mine are 4, 27, and 108.

    It's a computer game that comes with Windows.

    Call me stupid, but I feel lucky if I can even beat Minesweeper.

    It's on my PDA, so now I'll have a chance to practice while I'm in the porcelan planning library.

    I used to be really good at it, as well as Tetris and similar (Dr. Mario is the same basic idea as Tetris). I don't play anymore. Not really because I am a dutiful, ambitious student or anything but because I am a hedonist with a serious aversion to excruciating pain and I have tendon injuries. To this day, when I occasionally play something like that against my kids, they have to give me a handicap or they have no hope of winning. However, it has been so long since I played, I can't remember what my best times were.

    PS: Dan, it has nothing to do with "stupidity". You have made other comments that suggest you are not visual-spatial. That would be a big factor in a game like Minesweeper.

    Wow, people actually play that stuff? Never even noticed they were there.

    I've seen it. Tried to play it during a Council meeting a couple of times but as I'm not geared up to read instructions and I wasn't good at it straight away, I never stuck with it (something to do with Y chromosones I think ).
