    Done it under 100 once or twice. But went to college with a guy who could do it in the 80s. It was unbelievable to watch. Haven't played in forever -- much harder on a laptop.

    Never play the game. Too addicted to Freecell and Spider Solitaire.

    And backgammon. (Hi, IJAG!)

    It's all about the Pacman.

    What is your longest Freecell winning streak? Mine is 35, though I couldn't do that again.

    As far as minesweeper goes:
    beginner: 13 seconds
    intermediate: 68 seconds
    expert: 999 seconds (apparently I haven't played this one too much).

    Honestly, I never kept track. My attention is on the theory that every game is winnable. So far, this has proven true. I may need to restart a difficult game 10 times but I've managed to win eventually every time.

    Haven't really played since my old computer conked out, but the times are still burned into my brain. I once spent an entire afternoon playing it. Damn that game!
    Beginner: 12 seconds
    Intermediate: Think it was around 40 seconds
    Expert: 104 seconds

    I'm tempted to call BS on some of these claims. Under the right circumstances, I could see the expert level of Minesweeper being cleared in close to 100 seconds.

    But there is just no way every game of Freecell can be won. If the aces are buried, they're buried.

    I'm just saying that so far, I've managed it.

    Every game is winnable. That's why there's a set number of games. Those are the setups that can be won.

    Yeah, that's why even people I know who are good at the game are at best 20 games over .500.
