So, to make tha statistics complete, how many puzzles are solved each day on average?
And do you count timed puzzles against total solved, or are those completely apart from that staistics?


about 6000 on average (more on a weekday, less on Sat + Sun)

and yes, timed puzzles are included.

Patrick: wasn't the 1000,000th puzzle solved by some one in Europe also?

Also from the Netherlands, if I remember correctly.


So, we need the next millionth to be attained when the rest of the world is awake and users of Europe are [sleep]....... :-)

I just wanted to say congratulations to diamantje for solving puzzle number 2,000,000. I wonder what kind of puzzles he/she will choose as the prize. Had I been the lucky winner, I would've taken 100 of the 12x12 puzzles.

Oh goody, I love "what would you do if you won the lotto" discussions. :)

I would have traded mine in for the development of the 4x4x4 puzzle.

Yeah, I could get down with that as well.

What's the biggest twin puzzle that's ever been done on this site?

Hartelijk dank voor jullie reacties en felicitaties! [biggrin]

Een leuke verrassing om te lezen dat ik de 2 miljoenste puzzel heb opgelost.
Ik puzzel met veel plezier op deze site.

Op naar de 3 miljoen! De eerste twee mijlpalen zijn door Nederlanders behaald. Waar valt de volgende mijlpaal? ...... beaker? :-)

Veel plezier met puzzelen!


Thank you for your congratulations! [biggrin]

A nice suprice to read that I have solved the 2.000.000th puzzle.
It is a pleasure to make the puzzles at this site. The puzzles are very nice.

So, now we are going up to the 3.000.000…. The 1.000.000th puzzle has also been solved by a Dutch person. Who is next?…… beaker? :-)
Have a good time with the next puzzles!

With the trend being for a European solver, I'm afraid I'm about 7800 KM too far to the west [biggrin]......but, thanks for the plug.

Post 3,000,000 puzzles by Christmas?
Wow! It's only been about two and a half weeks since diamantje solved puzzle 2,000,000 and we're just about at 2.1 million! [blink] There are, on average, about 6,000 puzzles solved per day according to one of pnm's previous posts. As I type this, we have about 900,000 puzzles left to go before we reach number 3,000,000. That works out to about 150 days or 5 months of work if we continue solving at this rate. Obviously, we'll get there sooner if a great deal of prolific solvers set up accounts on here. Now that I think about it, Thanksgiving is just about 5 months away as well. That doesn't give us a lot of room for error, though. Wouldn't it be awesome if we could solve 3,000,000 puzzles by Christmas or New Year's Eve? I love this website and I think having 3,000,000 puzzles solved by Christmas would be a great goal for everybody here. How about it, guys?
