4.3. I had a run in the low 2's going but I did an errant double tap on the touchpad and got a 247 for that one...

4.5. The triangles are the most difficult for me.

I had trouble with those too, got lots of 8-13's on those. The rest were easy.

Parallelograms - it helps to hold something up to block the other lines, they throw your eye off. Triangle you need to keep thinking right angle for the closest path to each side, and/or imaging a circle around the point, touching each side.

3.14 by cheating. Command-option+ to zoom the screen in, and a ruler. If you take your time, you can get a lot of ones, even got a zero and a 0.3. Yeah, takes the fun out of it. But I fumbled a few, so 3.14. Probably 3.141592653589793 if they took the decimal out far enough.

I'm guessing the people with the really low scores are using rulers, and taking plenty of time. They should have a timed version.

Perhaps the time taken with each exercise should be a factor in the scoring. My 6.12 would probably end up in the 20's or higher.

This might explain the mystery of why a co-worker would come into my office and straighten the pictures.

8.5 on 1st try which I thought was pretty good until i see the others (remind me not to play golf with any of you that got 6 or less). I think I could do much better if I had a decent mouse instead of my 'eraser tip' pointer control....i dont have much use for games but this was pretty cool.

Since some say you can score lower if you take your time... I decided to do everyone within 10 seconds.... scored 3.50...

And I am very nearsighted... like -8.75... don't know why I can do this easily...

Did the best with "RIGHT" angles. Maybe my POV?

2.86 first try just eyeballing it. That's with a 9.4 on the third parallelogram.
