My top time is 1:43 and my tenth is 2:02. Generally, I stay around 3 minutes. Never cheated. Actually, I only learned it was possible to cheat on the comments here. How is it even possible to pause the game? And why is that fun?

My fastest extreme was on 10/14/17 with a time of 1:31. I play with highlighted numbers (only blue, no yellow highlight) which kind of feels like cheating. Is it considered cheating though? I wish I had a way of proving it and if it's not that impressive I'd like to know.

I like to do the extreme category with all help disabled, all highlighting disabled, and no pencil marks. When I first started this it was terrible. Now, my best time is around 6 with average being about 12.

I wish they would turn off pencil marks as a setting, because it really is a different game.

8 of my top ten are below 7 minutes on the extreme level, I'm working on those last 2, then the next goal will be the 6:30 mark and then 6 minutes and so on until my top ten are all at zero. Could take me a while because I've noticed a few posts that are down to the 2 and 3 minute mark. My best is only 5:23.
I only hope that everyone else enjoys it as much as I do.

My record for extreme is 2:43. Hard record is 1:22. I usually get around 3-5 minutes for extreme, and 2-3 minutes for hard. I would upload a screenshot, but there doesn't seem to be the ability to do that on mobile in this forum. Oh, well. I've been using the Genina app for maybe 4 years? Never really played Sudoku before that. I'm a smoker, so I play a game or two every time I go outside to burn one.

My all time best is 02:06. My top 10 best for the extreme sudoku are all 2mins or 3mins.

On average i solve the puzzles in 3-5 mins when im focused.

4-6 mins while watching series (Yes, I watch tv series while playing sudoku almost everyday when i feel like it).

Max 10 mins on hard ones.

Ive played sudoku for 10 years now. Love it. Im 28 yo.

I did a quick test, took a screenshot of an extreme, solved it offline, went back to resume the puzzle and all I did was type in the numbers (copy from the offline). That took about 1 minute. That was no thinking, no looking around. I uploaded the score and I wasn't even in the top 20. There are 81 squares, maybe 10 or 15 filled in for extreme, so 66 numbers at average 1 second each is over 1 minute.

You might be able to do an easy in 1 minute without cheating, mainly because there are less blanks to fill in.

i agree. My best for extreme is 2:06. I probably got the easiest extreme level puzzle that day. You know the ones you dont even have to use the pencil, and constantly filling the blank squares.

Top extreme time is 2:10 average about 3-7 minutes but I occasionally have puzzles that take me from 15 minutes to sometimes well over an hour.

3:27 extreme is my fastest

I see a lot of you mentioning that you made it to the Top 100 and i was wondering where to find the Top 10 on the site.

Been playing for a little over a week (had a lot of free time during winter break) and I've managed to cut down my extreme times to 4-6 minutes. My best is a 3:39 and I have a couple others under 4 minutes. When I use auto fill I average 2 to 3 minutes. No idea how I compare to all of you hardcore players out there but for people averaging 10 plus I recommend getting comfortable with all of the strats like pointing pairs box line reduction etc that are easy to recognize with the highlighting feature
