I managed to beat #203 in 29 days. How many days did it take you to
win? I agree that's a tough one.

#203 is 18 days. Its really not that bad, just a matter of finding the right moves at the beginning. The fun part is when you make a couple of small mistakes and get clobbered. This is one of the very best ones for teaching you to use the swiss cheese attack.

I just found an 18 day solution for #213. This is one of the toughest ones to beat!

#64 is the hardest Island. I beat it in 27 days.

#383 is a really good one to play. I beat this one in 18 days.

Wow, I feel really proud, I must have made tons of progress at this game :

Island 64, very clever, 6 players with me playing no.2, computer offered surrender at end of days 17 and 21 which I refused to end the game on day 23.

Am I missing something here or did I become really good at this game ? Perhaps we are not comparing like for like ?

I thought 106 was one of the very toughest to play in version 4.2 but I just found a 19 day solution. Its incredible! The best I had done previously was 26 days. Anyone else have a really good score on #106?

I've played #106 completely through 7 or 8 times. I usually play the first 3 moves of a given island then re-start to find the optimum starting positions.
