Post Do we get the same set of timed puzzles?
My site name notwithstanding :), I am a rather slow solver.
"flash" is always near the bottom of the ranked lists.
The speed demons seem superhuman to me.
But I still enjoy the discipline enforced by timed puzzles:
no error correction and no saved games.
It's an acquired taste, I suppose. :)

But I have a question: Do we all get the same set of puzzles to solve on any given day,
or are the puzzles chosen differently for each person?
In my experience, a puzzle's difficulty can be a subjective thing to measure and
doesn't always correlate with where I finish in the rankings.
So I'm wondering if we are competing in the same game or just in the same league. Thanks!

You get a random puzzle from a large pool, so in the long run you all get the same puzzles,
just not at the same time.

(it would make it too easy to practice the timed puzzles of a given day with one account,
then fill in the solution with another)
