Post Fastest time on a previously solved puzzle
Hi all,

As I'm on my holiday (finally [thumbsup] ) and I've got more time to spend on calcudokus, I started wondering how fast are others able to do a puzzle that you've already solved? I mean if you memorize the answer for a 4x4 puzzle, how fast are your fingers? [smile]

Here's an example, the fastest time I was able to get on today's Easy 4x4:

And I tried at least 5-10 times on each of today's 4x4's, most of the times were between 3,5 and 4 seconds..

Today's easy 4x4 (not the easiest sequence of numbers I think..):

After some intense grinding, I managed to get a 2.254 :

Like Patrick said though, the puzzle didn't feel 'comfortable' at all, but sadly all the 4x4 puzzles of today were with diagonal patterns...
I'll try again once I see my personal favorite, the 2x2 block puzzle.

That's insanely fast.

I hope you don't mind I edited your post to show the image in the post itself.

What type of keyboard do you use?

I got that time with a Microsoft wired keyboard 200 (I sometimes solve on different pc's and laptops).

Wow.

(We have negative number puzzles -- perhaps you can do a negative time.) [smile]

I feel so slow! On today's 4x4, I got a 7.742 (though I don't know how to get the image up here).

gefeliciteerd, jpoos, that is an INCREDIBLE time!
