Congrats, and welcome to the club!

Not a lot of movement these days, glad to see people are still making progress ...

I'm getting closer.  The trouble is just getting 7 days in a row of legitimate times without big mistakes.

that was my biggest problem. and I still don't think I have. But my other times for the week were daily PRs so they kinda held up my 11 minute Saturday!

I did it! Club 19 seems really far off, but maybe it's possible...

arrrg... so close... SO close... just because of a tiny, stupid mistake... 30:08 is annoying...

Keep trying. I hit 20.08 a little while back with a small mistake and broke into club 19 the next day.

Hmm ... my personal best weekly doesn't reflect my current runnings ... but I'm finally back in club 29!  after about three months of trying and a really weak Friday time... Out of practice!  I blame it on taking a few months off Kwon-Tom dailies

Ahh well.  Hopefully I'll keep on making progress ... And welcome to everyone else who's made it into the same club as me!

Just made it thanks to best-ever times for Saturday and Sunday. Too bad Club 19 is totally inconceivable for me.

Ack!  So close today!  I take solace in the wrongs.  Is that wrong?

You can still improve. You're only at 120 daily puzzles. I only made it to club 19 2 months ago after approximately 1250 daily puzzles. I beat club 29 a few months after I started. When I just entered Club 29 I never thought I'd make it to club 19 either. But slowly and slowly I kept creaping closer. I had beaten my best time 5 times under the 21 minutes before I finally broke that 20:00. And I've only been under 20 minutes for 1 day total. Still means I'm in Club 19 though.

Yeah same with me. I finally made Club 19 after a good 2-3 years of playing. I probably could have made it sooner - there was a week of fairly easy puzzles earlier in the year, but my net connection went out after starting the puzzle so I completely blew it.

I also don't make Club 19 every week. I'm usually in Club 29 and just get lucky sometimes. There's also the occasional tough weekend puzzle(s) that put me into Club 30.

Just keep at it - you'll start seeing more and more little things and tricks that will shave those seconds, and even minutes, off.

Wow. I just joined this club a few weeks ago and now with today's puzzle, my total of best times is almost under 20! I think it might actually be possible!

My best daily total is down to 20m 7s, haha. I do think it's possible, just gotta keep trying. I'd be pretty close today but Thursday's puzzle took me just under 6 minutes.

You're not the only one. I reached a position Highlander says is impossible and probably spent 1.5 to 2 minutes trying to fix it Kwon-Tom Wrong style. Ick.

the worst is when you complete a puzzle and realize that you have put one too many or one too few lines on a box or maybe created two loops and you have to work backwards, in effect creating a kwon tom wrong.
