Mini Golf

This is a fun way to waste a few hours.

Re: Mini Golf

Several years ago this game destroyed almost an entire week of my time as I competed with an ex-girlfriend (who sent me the link) to the point where we could both get holes in one on every single hole 100% of the time.

Thanks a bunch!

Re: Mini Golf

Now you know why a whole WEEK of my life went up in smoke.

They're ALL possible to do with a single stroke.

Good luck... :P

I had this, years ago, at Mega-Corp. Thanks for the memories and it will be put to good use.

Entirely true. Then I have to wait until she stops clinging to the ceiling by her toenails and drops back down to the trapeze for the second stroke.

Actually my first run was a 41 followed by a more reasonable 26. Then I decided to not eat up another entire week on it.

Hint: the big secret is that you can whack the ball REALLY hard. While I came up with perfect direct hole in one shots on all the holes, I saw some good solutions reached by hitting the ball at a fairly sharp angle as hard as possible and letting it just oscillate into the hole.

Re: Mini Golf

The best I did yesterday was a 34 but I was interupted by work many times so my concentration was off.

I agree, it's an EVIL game

Re: Mini Golf

In the realm of "more completely useless information in my brain", many years later I still recalled the exact shot that would get a hole in one on several of the holes :P
