Why I play the same game multiple time

edited August 2009 in General Discussion
First I want to say how much I enjoy your site and appreciate it almost every day.

I often will play the game of the day several times (always under the same name) and while I do enjoy seeing my assumed name on the leader board, there are other reasons as well. I do it because it often takes several/many/ an absurd number of attempts for me to beat the game. I am often blown away by the scores that prix gets on Hopeless and often feel hopeless in my attempts to come close the his or her score.
It is a challenge to try to even come close to their score and I think that having a challenge is much of what this site is about.

I think that having the first 'win' score time as the one that gets listed on the Leader Board' is a good compromise. Perhaps for some an additional challenge is seeing their name first on the Leader Board. I guess that means that they have two daily challenges for each game daily -- one to win and another to win fast -- it's a two-fer!

For me, it takes enough enjoyable and exasperating time for the single challenge of beating the game... The Leader Board provides a target and a yardstick of performance, sometimes proof that a game is winnable and sometimes the pride of seeing my assumed name up there on the Leader Board for awhile.

Thank you again for providing this site...

    It should be... Try holding down the shift key while clicking the reload button. Interesting though, I don't think I've ever seen that bug with Safari. Only with old Firefoxes.
