Not sure the exact date but I think mine was also 446...It was on a difficult category crypto that I solved in 19 seconds. I'm pretty sure that that's the highest I've seen. I don't know if I've ever solved one any faster. Sometimes I think the difficult ones are easier than the average or even easy ones, depending.

Default Easy vs Difficult

I have found that difficulty is based on length not on how really hard it is to solve.

I have been thinking of posting a plea about everyone slowing down because I'm going away...It's just so much fun, although I have a compulsion to solve every single one no matter what.

Default Fastest

I have not really kept track of my highest score. I think it is in the 440s, as I don't really recall anything of 450 or above.

You are right about difficulty being based on length.

Enjoy your time away, and come back refreshed.

I just hit two 446's in a row... one in 21 sec., the next in 24. I guess anything under 25 sec. rates a 446. (on a difficult rated puzzle, of course)

Default Highest score

I got some 446s, including on one puzzle I solved in 19 seconds. Since I've only ever done one puzzle faster than that (I managed exactly one in 17 seconds, and I don't recall the score) I'm not sure how fast you'd have to go to top 446.

I'm so excited. I just scored 447 for the first time. My best before was 446. Solved in 18 seconds and beat the last record holder by 1 second.

Default Best score

I've hit 448 several times. Usually involves solving the cryptogram in under 15 seconds.

Flutefish, that is impressive. The highest I've seen in 447. You're an inspiration.
