Well, 5:45 today and so far only good for 28th [cursing]


There are already 12 (yes, 12!) people under 3 minutes today and 25 people under 5 minutes. Amazing improvement in recent weeks.

All this happens with 8x8 because there is only one chance :-) :-) :-)

For me, the timed 8x8 was actually the only reason to become a subscriber.
If we had always had one attempt a week, I would probably still be a non-subscriber.
Besides, it would be even more frustrating to ruin your puzzle having only one of it every week.

My voice is for the status quo -- one 8x8 daily for subscribers.

7 puzzles a week, but you get 0-7 puzzles per day, randomly determined. The days you have several will be frustrating because you'll have too many. The days you have only one you'll know that other solvers will have more chances to outperform. And then on the days you have none you'll know that other people are getting that extra 1 to 5 points while you are not.
