Default Is there another mode besides competitive?

I am not interested in competing. I do these for fun. How do I turn off competitive mode?

Thank you
PJ

I think you just don't log in and play as a guest.

I agree, I do these for fun and I like to be able to pause for other tasks at will. I have no interest in having a bell curve tell me I'm an idiot just because I'm only doing these puzzles on breaks.

Default Unable

I think the issue is that they are unwilling to allow you to pause the game because you could study it then resume the time when you have it figured out.

The smart move would be to have a competition mode and a fun mode with only the fun mode having a pause button and the results NOT count in any competition. I would not mind a bell graph under those conditions.

Like you, I frequently need to pause for other work - sometimes for hours.

I think that is a great solution, dasadler.

Default Freedom from the clock

I'd like to throw my request in as well for a non-timed/non-competitive logic puzzle option. I do these during mini breaks at work and it's horribly annoying to get "very slow" results when i've been multi-tasking or away for awhile. Hoping this is an option in the future.

Default Ditto on all

Fun mode = no timer, with pause button.

Why have a pause button if there was no timer? What would be there to pause?

Default why pause

The reason you would want a pause AND a timer is so you could play against yourself without being ranked against others. In other words... you would be able to see improvements in times that would be obscured when ranked and categorized (as slow, super slow, etc.)

Stan is absolutely correct, though. If there is no timer, there is no need to pause.
