You should set the options to 2 players, both the options at the bottom set to Yes, obviously Expert difficulty, and timer at 5 seconds.

The far bottom option will allow you to win once you hit 26 points. You'll win at this point anyway but it'll make the games go faster.

The next option up will allow you to check multiple flags in a turn. This is obviously a good thing, because you'll be able to click up to 5 flags in one turn.

The timer set to 5 seconds will hinder the computer greatly. For lack of a better word, the AI cheats sometimes (going into the deep grey and pulling out multiple flags; hitting a 1 surrounded by 8 greys and almost always hitting the flag right off of it), but with the timer on 5 seconds the AI will get only 1 flag per turn, sometimes 2.

You're going to obviously have to be planning your moves ahead, keeping in mind that the AI is going to snatch the very obvious moves right away. Always be looking for that next move, always move and mark quickly and precisely.

Good luck.
