How to Play Minesweeper
Minesweeper is a game that's installed by default on most computers that come with Windows. Most people like to just click around the program hoping to not hit a mine, but if you want to master the game, then you have to play with strategy. The most important skill you can use while playing Minesweeper is a process of elimination.
Easy 5 steps manual:
- This field have ten mines.
- Click any square, preferably towards the middle. Most Minesweeper players click random squares until a group of squares "opens" up. If 4 or 5 squares opened after your click, it's time to evaluate the numbers. If only one square opens after your click, find another random square.
- Check the numbers to find bombs. As you uncover tiles, you will see numbers revealed. A number means that there are that number of bombs touching that tile (both sides, top/bottom, and diagonally). If you see a 1 on the board, it means that square is touching exactly 1 mine.
- Click known safe squares. Eliminate squares that can't possibly contain mines by left clicking. Say you found a 1, and you're pretty sure where the mine for that 1 is. You can click all the other squares around that 1 to open them, because the 1 can only be in contact with a single mine. *Use all of the numbers in a given area to figure out where the mines are.
- Keep moving through a process of elimination.
