Me too. I have yet to break a high score. If you figure it out, let me know. Rather frustrating on puzzles that don't require external knowledge. I am with you on the Sudokus. Although once it gets...

As a side note

Previously (prior to new puzzle) skip puzzles based on average time not size. I would do this because I could better estimate the maximum time it would take to play. I usually intended to play just...

Puzzles

I love that. :) Your solve time is great and even more impressive because of the amount of puzzles you have solved. My guess is even if I solved a gazillion more puzzles, I would have trouble...

Scoring

I haven't been playing as much, but I tend to agree with Struggler. There is no guarantee a lower number of clues puzzle will take less time to solve. And this month, I have had a puzzle where I took...

New Puzzles

Thanks for the new puzzles. I just played one of them, so I set the first record, but I am sure many of my fellow players will make quick work of that. :)

Great Site

I think the admins of this site do a great job. I knew I could never compete with Robin and Struggler, but that didn't really phase me. I may be odd, but I was curious who would end up in first. Try...

I agree Miguelito. Struggler and Robin57 are quite the marathon acrostic solvers and record setters.:)

Fun with Acrostics

I am fast, but zobavelva is keeping me on my toes and there are a lot fast solvers not that far way. Maybe zobavelva is related to AuntMarie. :) It is funny how you picture the other players based on...

Glad you are ok.

Yes, Robin57 is quite the acrostic aficionado.Glad to know you are still playing. It just seemed a little odd without your name at the top of the leader boards, though you still have a lot of the...

Hello all, I hope Miguelito doesn't figure out how much time I spend. I try to tell myself it is just a few minutes here and there, lol. I was surprised AuntMarie wasn't back for this month. I hope...

Well said
