Yes, you have to play a large number of puzzles of the same size and difficulty.

This month, I've done 220 puzzles that are 4x5 moderate difficulty. My guess is that there are somewhere between...

I've had some sub-30 times on the 3x4 puzzles, and sub-50 times on 4x5 puzzles. I don't know the lower limit for times on the larger puzzles, but it's 50s for the 4x5.

I frequently come across...
