Minesweeper game info

The Minesweeper game is a classic game known from being packaged with various operating systems such as Windows. The game has become very popular in the United States and around the globe. The original game had three difficulties (beginner, intermediate, expert).

Rules of the game

Goal

The goal in Minesweeper is to locate as fast as possible all 40 mines in the playing field, mark them with a flag, and open all squared that do not contain a mine. Each square in the playing area can either be a mine, a number or empty.

Valid moves

Start by clicking a square. The first square is guaranteed not to have a mine. Clicking a square will probably reveal some other adjacent squares, giving you information about where the mines are located. You can then start deducing where mines are located, based on the already revealed numbers. When you identified the location of a mine, mark it with a flag by right clicking the square. If you are not sure whether a square contains a mine or not, you can mark it with a question mark by right clicking the square twice. If you marked a square incorrectly, you can just keep right clicking it to remove the flag or question mark. Right clicking a square will cycle through three states: nothing, flag, question mark.

Winning

To win the game you must open all squares that don’t have a mine. This means that flagging the locations of the mines is just to help you remember where they are, but it’s actually not required.
