Everyone has the impression that minesweepers are difficult to play; it is easy to play. These tips will help you play and win as long as you have a good system and a good mouse.

1. Know the basics of the game. That is how it works. It will make winning easy. The concept is this when you click square; it gives you a number; that number is the number of how many mines surrounding it.

2. When you begin your game click the four squares in the corner, mark the mines that are downright, then find the mines around the number.

3. Lastly, click on the left and right of the mouse simultaneously over a number that has its mine already; this will open all the blocks around it, which will save time.

Minesweeper does not come pre-installed into Windows computers anymore. You can download the remastered version from Windows 10 store for free. It will teach you how to play.

• Each minesweeper game begins with a grid of untouched squares.

• Upon clicking on one of the squares, some of the squares will disappear.

• Some remain vacant, and some will have numbers on them.

• Your goal is to employ the numbers to figure out which of the empty squares contain mines and which are safe to click.

• Use the mouse’s left and right buttons.

• The mouse is the only tool that is necessary to play in minesweeper.

• Clicking a square will clear off some of the board while numbering other squares.

• You must know the meaning of the numbers.

• A number on square mines that are currently touching that square.

• For example, if two squares are touching each other and one of the squares has a one on it, you know the square next to it has a mine beneath it.

A lot of people find it confusing to play minesweeper, but as long as you know a few things, it will not be too hard.

Every time you press a square, you will get a number. The number will show you the number of mines that surround the square that you have chosen.

All you have to do is to make sure that you will not choose the square that has a mine or you will blow up, and the game is over.

If you do find a mine, you can find some squares around it that will allow you to open up more areas that can help you play the game even more.

Some people become experts at it the more that they play it. The more that you play it, you may become an expert at it too.

Minesweeper is a computer game that is offered on Windows.

For those who need help learning the game, the following is how to play it.

• Find your first mine. This can normally be done by clicking around on various blocks.

• Clear out any other mines that are found.

• The biggest part of the game is guessing. When doing so, be sure to make the right guess.

• From there, use the 1-2 pattern to clear out blocks

• Use the wall method to determine if it is a good spot to put the blocks

• Once all the safe blocks are open; the game is done.
