Re: Sticky: The Personal Record Thread!

you were lucky with the bottom left corner - did you finish there, or did you leave it to potentially come back to later if the game didn't end? also, i think you could beat your best exp time NF ;) I finished in the upper left, shortly after discovering that in the bottom left. Generally, when dea...

Re: Sticky: The Personal Record Thread!

Very nice! And look at how few flags you have - you should join the NF dark side :twisted: Heh, thanks. I'm actually rather good at NF compared to most flaggers (check my signature), so I think I'll stick with both. I neglect NF a little though, so you're right in that I should play it more. :mrgre...

Re: Sticky: The Personal Record Thread!

Finally beat my 2.5-month standing 19.53 with a 19.13! Feels good, and it's slightly quicker as well - a .2 3bvs improvement. Hooray.

Re: Quasi-empirical estimation of expected board completion rate

I'm curious as to what would happen if, instead of disregarding any initial null numbers (1-8), one would make the best possible random guess. Obviously, a 1/8 chance is a much more favorable one to the density of an expert board if one were to find a one by clicking randomly. I'm sure this wouldn't...

Re: 9's.

A few days ago I encountered a forced guess that I later discovered was a nine. Pretty cool. Never gotten an eight though!

Re: Sticky: The Personal Record Thread!

Ahah thanks. Up until yesterday I mainly played int, since I believed it was more fun. (Generally I played about 2 hours of int and 1 hour of expert). But now I'm pretty much not gonna play int again until I get a sub90 on exp. Thanks!

Re: Sticky: The Lost Games Thread!

Would've been a 25-->28 on density, but alas, this very easy board ended with a 50/50. Oh well, I'll keep trying! 28 would be quite nice. I got my 25 pretty instantly a long time ago and haven't tried anything since.

Re: Sticky: The Lost Games Thread!

First post on the forum and it's the most embarrassing one I can think to make, but here goes. I posted this on the Minesweeper facebook page earlier today, but I figured more people would enjoy it here. 3BV=2 beginner game. I got startled and didn't look at the lower section; the upper section is t...
