I’m almost embarassed to admit this, but I play Minesweeper on occassion. I have spats where I’ll play it a lot for a while, then put it away and go months, even years, without playing it.
Well, I’ve been on a run recently and I thought I’d put up my most recent records for the world to see. Why am I doing this? Umm… I’m not really sure. It’s been a slow week. Here’s a screenshot of my current records:
I’ve heard that you’re not even considered a decent “sweeper” (that’s what the true Minesweeper geeks call themselves) unless your combined time for all three levels is less than 60 seconds.
SIXTY SECONDS?! Don’t expect that I’ll ever reach Minesweeper geekdom and be considered a true “sweeper.” The following video shows the current world champion sweeper in action. He has written that he played Minesweeper 6 hours per day to perfect his skills. Ummm… thanks, but you can keep your sweeper-geek status to yourselves. I have things to do… like HAVE A LIFE!
Now that’s what I call ridiculous. Like I said, it’s been a slow week.
