- Mine Field is a deceptively simple test of memory and reasoning—and one of the most popular Windows games of all time.The goal: find the empty squares and avoid the mines.
- 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 eight surrounding squares—information you use to deduce which nearby squares are safe to click.
