Essentially, you start with 800 points. For every second you take over 150, you lose a point. You lose more points for using a hint, but I don't know how many.

I don't think anyone types in the puzzle itself. I type in the clues. There are times when I can finish typing the answer to one clue while I am reading the next. If I go through the clues quickly,...

I don't see them jumping in to defend their skill . . .
