    Cool Just beat minesweeper for the first time!

    I know, probably not a big deal, but I just beat it for the first time.

    I've only played the game about 75 times or so, and didn't really understand the rules until yesterday.

    I got one away from beating it yesterday, and I finally beat it today.

    On easy though

    minesweaper is pretty simple to figure out. You pick a tile and it lets you know how many tiles around it contain a bomb, its all about probability, but picking the right tile is difficult sometimes but it was a fun game back in '95 :-p

    Yes it's simple to learn, but it's not great, I think it's a very stupid game, I never like playing it, and I never finished it when I play I either loose or get bored, and close the game.
    none...

    I love that game.

    Hmm lemme see my best scores are:
    2sec
    38sec
    113sec

    But that's still really crappy compared to some of the scores on here: http://metanoodle.com/minesweeper/
    Check out the videos. It's insane. The game isn't about patterns anymore after you've reached a certain level. It's more about speed, accuracy, distance you move your mouse...
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    Whoa you're right. I never noticed that before. What was it on Win98? Anyways 9x9 is supposed to be easier assuming the number of bombs are the same.
