mlwalton13 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hours spent...

I don't actually keep track of this...But as I'm currently unemployed I find myself looking for things to occupy my mind (aside from very diligent job search efforts, of course, ahem) so I was figuring out how much time I've spent playing so far...at the time of this writing, I've played 289 games, at 2 minutes a game, that's 578 minutes, roughly 9.6 hours.

How much do you play?

Just wanted to add, I promise, no judgement. :-)

Default Play time

I play a lot.

4x4 - 1,985 hours
5x5 - 1,012 hours

Total - 2,997 hours, 124 days

That's my record. WordTwist challenges me, that's why I play it so much. I'm tested in typing speed and memory ability simultaneously. Plus, I usually listen to music for even more stimulation while playing.

Is that a lifetime record? I just used my number of games so far this month.

Yeah, that's lifetime so far. It will continue to increase.

Megaword, do you also take time to find boards you will play? Since I am excruciatingly picky about the boards that I will tackle, I spend a lot of time flipping through boards, looking for ones that have insanely high numbers of common words. This time would not be reflected in a simple calculation of minutes-that-board-is-active x # of boards.

For example, last month I only played 51 5x5 games - just enough to get in the top 10 of the "highest average score list," which was my goal. However, I spent a lot more time than 51 games x 3 minutes/game would suggest. Most of it was spent flipping through boards I was unwilling to play. I also abort a game from time to time if it is going really badly.
