My new minesweeper score

This time i was able to manage it in 7 sec.. :)

Thats pretty good. My record is 4 in beginners, 26 in intermediate and 76 in expert.
The trick to get a 4(I know of some who have got a 3) is you never expose a mine(that is right click). You just go on clicking on the empty squares. You need guts to do that.
That how I got a 26 In the second level but I had to mark atleast half the mines.

I am playing after years and just did a search online to check where I stand.
My current score is a 7, 86, 193 for all the levels respectively.
I just cannot do the trick I told you above. I hesitate(if you hesitate you end up taking more time that you would if you were marking the mines in this method).
So I think even after years(where I abuses my body and brain I am pretty good when It comes to mental games).
Thanks for putting up the post. Checked other sites too and my scores are pretty much above average.

Hey I just had a doubt cause I have saved screen shots of my games before(when I used to normally do a 5 as people would not believe me) I always remembered saving the screen shot with the highest scores visible.
I thought once you clicked ok the game would reset(pardon me but I thought maybe you doctored the screenshot), so i went and tried to beat my intermediate score to see if it gets reset.
As of now my intermediate score is 71.
Here is a screen
Damn now I am going to get addicted to this

Dont worry 63 is the maximum I did in the intermediate. I was wasting too much time I could not eat my expert score at all.
I would be making silly mistakes and by mistake click the wrong square even when I did not want to click(hours of playing) and also got a nice pain in my wrist.
I uninstalled the damn game
Btw I also got a 5 in beginners, when I would not make in expert i would try to break my records in the first two level just to keep myself happy.
Man i was going crazy
If you get crazy got to add/remove programs and unistall it from windows components
Best of luck I am never playing this game again :-P
Yu know there is guy on youtube that does the expert level in less than 40 seconds. Check it out
