Welcome to the blog, and welcome to playing Minesweeper! This is a game that people play when they’re new to computers. It’s also a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. Here are some tips for playing Minesweeper.
Minesweeper is a game about knowing how to respect numbers.
If you don’t know how to count, it can be a bit frustrating to play Minesweeper. Numbers matter in this game—they are the only thing that matters. In fact, if you don’t understand numbers, then you might as well quit playing altogether because without them, nothing else matters!
Counting is a skill that everyone needs to have at some point in their life. You might not use it every day or even every week but when you do need it (like when playing Minesweeper), it can make all the difference between success and failure.
You can learn counting skills just by practicing them over time. The more often you practice counting things like money or points on sports games; the better your counting will become over time until eventually it becomes second nature for you! There’s no right way of learning how-to-count since everyone has different ways of learning new things but hopefully this guide helps get started!”
It’s better to be wrong, than to explode.
If you find yourself in a situation where it’s not clear whether you’ve made a mistake or not, it’s better to be wrong than to explode. You don’t want to waste time with a risky guess that could result in an explosion and having to start over again (since this is Minesweeper and not Minesweeper Lite). If there was no way for me to tell which of my mines were correct, I’d rather wait another few seconds and make sure that I’m on the right track than risk wasting all of my hard-earned flags by guessing incorrectly.
This game is all about precision and patience, so take your time with each step of solving the puzzle!
If a safe field is surrounded by mines, then count up the number of the flagged fields around it.
In order to count up the number of flagged fields around it, you need to be able to identify the number of mines around it.
When you begin your first game, you will see that each field has some numbers on it. The first number is the amount of mines in that field and the second one is how many flags are surrounding it. If a safe field is surrounded by mines, then count up the number of flagged fields around it because this means there are more than 1 flag in that area and therefore there must be at least 1 mine there too!
If you’re in doubt, flag it!
If you don’t know what to do, it’s best to flag the field. This will allow you go back and take a closer look at the field later. If you don’t know what the number is, flag it. Maybe there’s something else on top of that square that could be important information for solving your puzzle? If you’re not sure if a field is safe or not, flag it! You can always come back later and look for mines after looking at the rest of the grid more closely (if there are any).
Minesweeper is a game of precision and patience.
This is where the game gets interesting. You have to learn how to think like a minesweeper.
The first step in this process is learning not to focus on the field, but instead on the numbers. The number tells you if there are any mines underneath that square or not. If there are no numbers, it means that there’s a mine below it (or maybe just nothing). If there’s already been a flag put down in that square, then you know that there’s definitely something underneath it and you can safely skip over it without having to mark off anything else around it.
It may seem simple at first glance but when you’re playing against time under pressure, things get tough very quickly!
I hope these tips help you to win more of your games and have fun playing Minesweeper. If you want to learn more, be sure to check out our other blogs on this topic that go over strategies for intermediate players and experts. Have a great day and game on!
