 One of the most difficulty deals I ever had. With a huge amount of luck I found a solution after about 20 tries. But I needed another 20 tries to reproduce the solution. What do you think: Is it really such a hard deal? Or is it just hard for me?

Got it first try. Either it's not really that hard, or I was lucky, or maybe I'm just good. But thanks for the fun challenge. 

Took 12 minutes

Congrats, outskirts. Either I missed a better path or you are just a better solver 🙂

Well there were 1000 ways to go on that one, with twists and turns and side streets everywhere! And I take my time. It was a fun one. I'd like to see the good top players try it out!

Just played two 9x1s, which both took an identical time of 10:33. First one was 36/1 after I'd played it, and the second was 35/25, but they both seemed equally difficult to me. This game can be pretty humbling at times!

Got this second try because it looked winnable to me

This didn't seem too hard. I sent a lot of one suit home. Maybe the other 3 didn't try that:

Altho it's not normal to list a game here with only 2 (now) plays, I'm kinda proud of this one just now in the SSC:

11x0 6938-6 


Considerable funk, but also considerable fun.

I messed up the play on this one, and as I stared at it in utter dispair, I suddenly realized that there might still be another (obscure) solution.  And sure enough, after about 40 more moves, there it was.  Whew, whew, whew,🙂!

This editor is HORRIBLE, imo!!!!

There's apparently stuff I can't see.

It seems to think almost everything is misspelled, and I can't even delete unnecessary blank lines!

Gee, 0.409 isn't much of a reward.  I wonder why???

In a post 9 days ago (Fri May 3 20:27:13 2024), I got 2.03!

A pleasant surprise, considering I banged up my elo by loss of over 200 pts the last few times I played daily competitions. 

Ps-Tony, re: your above post, that does seem crazy small elo for 1 in 42!
