130 tiles          9:34


You run out of moves from pieces being blocked in basically.  You need to clear wide edge pieces first along with the tall pieces to avoid running out of moves.  It's certainly part skill, but also the luck of getting a good board that you can get to zero tiles with good strategy.  It's a challenge for a few reasons, finding the matches, finding them quickly, and solving the puzzle in a manner that won't get you stuck.  


When i bought this game i thought i'd never play it, looked boring, but it's wound up being one of my favorite lynx games!  Super addictive once you get into it.

Good and challenging round guys!  Congrats to @jeremiahjt for crushing this map!  This is the first map I haven't been able to get to 144 on...must have played it 60-80 times just couldn't get it done.


Will get the next round up today. 


@roadrunner can you add the top time to HSC records?
