Cool Cheats

I like to play for fun and for relaxation.

I think this is how people post 30 /40 secs time for a 4 x 5 moderate puzzle in competitive mode.

Copy the URL of the puzzle you just opened and copy the puzzle on to a blank page of MSWORD or some such software... estimated time 3-4 secs.

Solve the puzzle off-line.
Re-login and paste the copied URL to open the puzzle and simply click the answer.

Cheats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The timer is server based, so if you re-open a puzzle in any way, the timer has been going the whole time. People have complained about the timer running while the game is "paused" many times, actually, and the reason it won't be changed is because if it is, cheating will happen exactly as you have described.

I have many of the record times in 4x5 moderate puzzles, and I do not cheat. I guarantee that getting record times is possible with lots of practice. I've been amazed how much my speed has improved in the 3 years I've been solving these puzzles, and there are a whole lot of users who have solved far more puzzles in those 3 years than I have!

50s is the minimum time that the game will record for 4x5 puzzles, and even though I've hit 50s a number of times on easy puzzles, I think I've only done it once or twice on a moderate 4x5 puzzle. It's rare to see a record time under 70s on 4x5 moderate puzzles.
