Test of memory and reasoning with Minesweeper .
The goal : find the empty squares and avoid the mines.
How to play
The rules in Minesweeper are simple:
Uncover a mine, and the game ends.
Uncover an empty square, and you keep playing.
Uncover a number, and it tells you how many mines lay hidden in the surrounding squares—information you use to deduce which nearby squares are safe to click.
Hints and tips
Mark the mines. If you suspect a square conceals a mine, click the flag button to mark it . This puts a flag on the square.
Study the patterns. If three squares in a row display 2-3-2, then you know three mines are probably lined up beside that row.
Explore the unexplored. Not sure where to click next? Try clearing some unexplored territory. You're better off clicking in the middle of unmarked squares than in an area you suspect is mined.
