I started playing 2 months ago and I am still improving. But I don't think I can beat 150 for expert. The scores in this page are incredible. Mine are b:7, I:44, E:197.

My best times are beginner-4, intermediate-24, expert-75. If you do not believe me, then go to my minesweeper web site and check out the pics. I've also included a hall of fame for expert level, so submit your times at my site.

I like to play minesweeper with custom settings.Lately, I've been playing on a 24x24 grid with 155 bombs. I almost never win, but I have won three games. I don't know what my fastest time is, but I think it was 485.The key to winning is not only being able to solve the fully determined situations, but to weigh relative risks when you have to guess.Anyone play with bomb densities higher than .269?

B=3; I=22; E=76. B and I were done on my Windows 3.1. while E was done on Win95. wow. i thought i was somewhat special (coz my friends aren't interested on this) until i found this page. i was so happy. that i am not the rare ones who would go crazy on minesweeper. and i discovered that B is really a lucky trial... and what i need is to practise more, or be more lucky, so that i can score better times :)

What is it about this game that is so addictive? I play it while I'm talking on the phone, or waiting for a Website to load, or taking a break from typing something, or trying to get myself sleepy in the middle of the night, or even if I've got some problems to think over! Best times: B=6; I=28; E=108 (which I don't think I'll ever beat, but will keep trying forever!) I like the Intermediate best; I think it's the most "friendly"... Congrats on a great Webpage!

I started playing minesweeper seriously about three weeks ago, and am already having dreams about those little numbers and flags. I love the game and will spend hours, literally, sweeping the field. My best scores are Beginner: 7, Intermediate: 45 (did that earlier tonight), and Expert: 217 (I'm not professional like you guys but it took me at least 12 hrs of playing time to even beat expert. So I am coming along. Good luck to all.

B=2 sec, I=21 sec ,E=86 sec. I have been playing this game for years. The 2 sec is pure luck. I just scored the 21 sec on May 20 of this year. I actually have a screen capture of this one.

Thank you displaying your minesweeper win 3.1I deliberately deleted the game from my notebook during my exam time due to addiction and I was desperately searching for the game for days. Thank you.

Great Page! I too am a Minesweeper addict, and had a ~100 time in Expert mode on my Win3x machine, but I lost that score when I switched to Win95. Still trying to break that barrier, but my stupid mouse often "sticks" so I hit the square beside the one I wanted to! Really frustrating. I might just buy a new mouse so I play minesweeper with the best of you.Besides the fun aspect of the game, I think it has more to give us, such as increased logic abilities. I started playing this game when I was six or seven years old, and now I can kick anyones ass in logic-based games at school.

B = 5; I = 28; E = 98. Have seen a 3 on Beginner by a guy who couldn't solve the Intermediate puzzle. Nice site... some good scores. I'll keep trying. Can anyone suggest an optimal monitor size or mouse model?

I've often wondered about myself and if I'm addicted to the game...now I realize I am. I actuallt had a dream about minesweeper last nigh and often, before I drift off into a deep sleep, I come up with new patterns in my head and go through various solutions etc. Best Times= B=4, I=66, E=163

Well, it seems I've got the best expert time on this guestbook. That's nice. Of course, I don't pretend to be among the world's elite (yet), with only 4, beginner, 28 intermediate and 74 expert.I think I'll be playing some more intermediate, after having seen some low twenties and even high teens.Keep sweeping !

My high score was 162 for about a year until Nancy got 158 last month. Are there any other husband/wife teams out there?We don't have a clue how anyone can get under 100 let alone under 60. I think I have too much "Minesweeper Elbow" to get scores like that.What do you do for recreation?

Ok... The cheat was something along the lines of xyzzy[left shift][enter]... It doesnt work in Win 95/NT... However, if you hexedit winmine.exe, you will see that the string xyzzy still exists in there. I wondering if its the same code, just that maybe it doesn't work with the GDI's... just a thought.
