My best on the beginner level 1s 12 seconds. Can's remember my best on the intermediate of the expert level. I have only ever completed the expert level twice.

Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling has completed the expert level in 99 seconds.

My fastest time at beginner was 9 seconds, I was just clicking randomly. I'm not sure if this counts, but I found out how to stop the clock and as a result my fastest time for expert was 2 seconds. :thumbsup:

Alan.

From what I can remember you start the game by clicking on any square then click and hold the left mouse button on any square (don't let go) then press the ESC key. Thats what I did. I haven't played it in years though.
Regards,

Alan.

Gah I hate this game I always click on the mines. I don't think I even finished this game once. Its like a rubiks cube in a computer.

From what I can remember there is also a way to find the safe squares. I'll do some digging if your interested.

just pay close attention to the numbers they tell you how many mines are around them

Strategies and tips

If you are uncertain about a square, right-click it twice to mark it with a question mark (?). Later, you can either mark the square as a mine or remove the markings by right-clicking the square again once or twice.

If you have marked all the mines around a numbered square, you can uncover the remaining squares around it by clicking the numbered square with the left and right mouse buttons simultaneously. If not all mines surrounding the numbered square have been marked, the remaining covered or unmarked squares will appear to be depressed (or flash) when the numbered square is clicked with both buttons simultaneously.

Look for common patterns in numbers, which often indicate a corresponding pattern of mines. For example, the pattern 2-3-2 at the edge of a group of uncovered squares indicates a row of three mines next to the three numbers.

There's another easter egg you can use to help you beat a game.
Open Minesweeper, put your mouse inside the minesweeper window. Type XYZZY, hit Shift+Enter, than Enter again. There's now a dot in the top left corner of the screen (a pixel big, I think) To use this to your advantage, put your mouse over a square. If that dot is white, then the square is safe. If it's black, then the square is a mine.
Use this with freeze timer to get really good scores on any difficulty!

I think there's also a way to actually edit your scores.
