Jesse: I have no idea. I don’t keep track. you big loser.

35 minutes later

Jesse: seriously, what’s your best beginner score?
mike d: I’m not sure. maybe 4 seconds or so. I really think that the beginner map is based almost entirely on chance, less on skill. what’s yours?

    What’s your best time on Expert?

    I had a college roommate who was sick at Minesweeper, and he has a sub-30 intermediate score, too. I told him about your feat, and his first question was what your best time on Expert is.

    See, Expert is a totally different bag of marbles. Because the ratio of “mined to cleared” spots differs, it seems difficult to crosstrain.

    As a result, I can’t use the same strategy for Expert as Intermediate. And to be honest? I never really played much expert, so I’m not entirely proud of my 98sec. score. I stick by my intermediate though. That was an adventure.
