Rules of the Minesweeper :

The aim of the game is simple: to discover all the free squares without exploding the mines in the grid. icon-mine

To uncover a square, left-click (normal click) on one of the squares on the grid. case-minesweeper

By clicking on a box you can see how many mines are in the boxes (maximum 8) that surround it left or right, up or down, or diagonally.

You can use the numbers to free up other boxes. In this example, the "2" at the bottom left is a guess that there are two mines surrounding it.



Once the flag is placed, you can guess that there are no mines in the marked places, since the "1's" at the bottom right already have a mine on the squares around them. You can therefore left-click (normal click) on these two squares.

The smiley face is the little face that reacts according to the player's actions. Most of the time, the smiley face smiles. If the player clicks on a square where there is no mine, then he makes a surprise face.

If the player finishes the game, then the smiley face will play proud, and if the player clicks on a mine, then the smiley face will play dead. The smiley also allows you to redo a game by clicking on it.

The Tricks of the Minesweeper :

The second shot is the riskiest. In fact, you have a 1-in-18 chance of running into a mine.icon-mine

But we have to start somewhere. The trick is to click first on one of the moves in the grid.

Statistically, corners are more likely to avoid a mine.icon-mine You will then see one or more numbers displayed. The trick is to focus on the "1's", especially the numbers that surround individual boxes.

By continuing in this way, you will be able to solve the Beginner and Intermediate level.

For the "Expert" level, you may be confronted with more complex situations, so you will have to make assumptions to find the mines.

A certain logic that is acquired over time,and sometimes a little luck to win a game.
