Largest solved boards

Post by CBright » Tue Aug 04, 2015 6:18 pm

I was contacted by someone who is running Minesweeper X on a gigantic screen (their boards have nearly 200,000 squares). To reach an expert density they actually need more mines than MSX currently allows, so I'll be providing an update for that.

They wanted to know what the largest solved board with expert density was. The best record I could find was on youtube. Anyone know if this record still holds, or if there is a ranking for really large boards? Thanks!

There have been a few wild claims of larger boards being won but this is the biggest board for which a full video of a successful solve exists. Thus I still consider it to be the largest board to be ever won.

200 000 squares sounds great though and I'd love to try this. Good luck to them and if they ever solve it, I have to see the replay (or rather a screencap video because it obviously wouldn't fit on my screen). I would totally watch all of it at normal playing speed.
