Sticky: The Lost Games Thread!

Post by EWQMinesweeper » Mon Apr 02, 2012 5:11 pm

much more often than personal records we happen to lose games that either would have been a new personal record or have something else that is in some way special. feel free to post and share your games here. let me start with this expert board:

/me exp game --> Time: 21,21 «» Est Time: 35,55 «» 3BV: 86/147 «» 3BV/s: 4,26 «» ZiNi: 100@2,89 «» Human ZiNi: 117@3,39 «» Openings: 6/7 «» Islands: 11 «» CL: 86@4,26 «» IOE: 1 «» ThroughPut: 1,08 «» Correctness: 0,93 «» Flags: 20 «» Ranks: 0/0 of 12901 / 0% :>

i started with a single click in the middle of the board, uncovering a 196 squares opening. too bad that the rest of the board is very dense. not too sad about the blast, as i obviously made the right decision there. (to emphassise how big this opening is: the biggest possible opening on a valid int board is 187 squares).

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 the only one that I saw. I figured I wouldn't get a good time if I hesitated any longer, so I clicked an "unknown" square without even looking at the lower arrangement of mines. I was also talking to someone at the same time, so I wasn't really expecting a 2 3BV board. Feel my pain+make fun of me:

hey matt, welcome to the forum. this is really an unfortunate blast, especially as the chances to get a 2 3bv board are ~1 in 20k. don't worry, nobody here will make fun of you because of this blast - we all have already had our share of silly mistakes and lost games.

here's a collection of mistakes that were really painful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-QRD83itq0

That's the sort of mistake I could well make too. Because when I'm playing beginner, clicking an isolated square like that would be the first thing I'd do if that's where my mouse was closest to.

watch the replay and you will see that this, although finished, can be considered a huge fail. wasted 3 clicks at the end and had to choose a longer path. i got nervous and could not hit the right mouse button anymore.

Ok, this is just mean, minesweeper :( . Giving me these rediculously easy boards when I am clearly not warmed up enough to handle them properly. Just for the record, when warmed up I never go below 2.00 hzini/s and avg. around 2.10-2.20 hzini/s. Yes, that's right, I don't give a crap about 3bv/s, as I'm a flagger.

This position is a nightmare afaict holding in store for me 2 successive 50-50s... In short, pure EVIL!!!

Also, got a 49.01 earlier today on a similarly badly timed board. That is 0.02 seconds too slow to be sub50x14... (FYI)

FML, I need cookies :evil:

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.

I lost an intermediate with 90 mines on the last 3BV, the last 3BV was on a 1/3 guess and i guessed wrong...
I'll keep trying this density.

Need I say more?

It's a bit frustrating, but mostly reassuring.

Expert dreamboard and I fucked it up. This stings, especially as the mistake I made was so fucking stupid - NF/FL fuckup.

an old one (back then my record was 125 so that would have been a huge jump)

would have been nice to at least finish a sub40. 1st click hit a 171 or 172 squares opening, last 13 3bv of the board would have been very tough to solve. i have saved the .avf and am unsure whether i should post the video or not.
