    No clever solutions here -- you just have to grind this out. Every board is random and unique, so here are a few general strategies:

    Start by focusing on the middle of the board and clearing as much real estate as possible. When you get stuck, move to the edges of the board, as they will often help you "walk" along the edge and you will clear a lot of previously difficult sections. However, it is pretty common to get some "coin flip" sections of the board where you simply have to guess, especially when you're down to a small number of remaining flags.

    My stats are in the ballpark of 35 wins and 500 losses, so expect to lose 10-15 rounds for every win. Some will be in the first few moves, but some will be very late in the round.

    You can track your progress in the "My Stats" section.

    HighT3chR3dn3ckSo far 1-133, probably only 2 or 3 losses can be attributed to my mistakes. Just having really bad luck with this

    I was over 10 as i said, but if u go to help and options and click on "my stats" that's where it goes by. I was at 8 there and after 2 wins it popped

    ThePootermobileI'd just like to add that the 35 - 500 record seems way off. I've only got 4 wins and I'm sitting at 200+ losses already, almost all attributed to bad coin tosses or losses before I got started.

    The GlobalizerMileage will vary, certainly, but those were my actual (ballpark) stats. I found that a good way to start was to pick a random center spot, and if the number is too high, move away from that area. If you don't have a path, play the probabilities.
