You can find it on every computer with Windows operating system. To do this, click "Start" - "All Programs" - "Games" - "Minesweeper". Despite the fact that this program is on almost every computer, not all users know how to play Minesweeper. We decided to tell you the rules and give some useful tips that will help you quickly learn how to play and win.

How to play the game Minesweeper - instruction

For a start, I would like to advise you to start the game at the minimum level of difficulty. Increase minefield size gradually.

Purpose of the game: the player needs to find all the mines and neutralize them by checking the boxes with the right mouse button. With the left mouse button we have to open all the cells behind which there are no mines hidden.

  1. So, you launched Minesweeper and started a new game. I went to the countdown. Now it is very important not to run into a mine. After all, the first time we click on any of the closed cells.Use, for example, your intuition, for the first time.
  2. You clicked on an arbitrary cell, and opened a whole area of ​​such cells, where there are no mines. Ok, now pay attention to the numbers. Here they are not accidental and give you very important information. These numbers show you how many mines are located near this cell with a digit in the radius of one cell. In other words, if you see the number 1, it means that there is only one mine at a distance of one cell from this figure, and so on. Another question - where exactly is this mine? To the right of the cage, to the left? This question will be answered by other numbers in other cells.
  3. If you are sure that a mine is located on one of the closed cells, mark it with a flag (right mouse button).
  4. Clicking on the cell with the right mouse button twice, you put a question mark on it. This question mark does not affect the game, but it allows you to mark the disputed cell and return to it later. Sometimes it is very convenient.
  5. If you see, for example, that there is a number 2 and there are already two checkboxes next to it that you have checked, then you can safely open all the others in the radius of one cell near this cell.
  6. This is how we open all the other cells and designate mines until victory.

Now you know how to play Sapper! Beat your own records and compete with friends.The game “Minesweeper” is not only interesting, but also very well develops logic, trains the brain as a whole. Many people play it not a year or two. If you look at a player who plays the Minesweeper for several years, you just wonder in the game. He opens the cells so quickly that it becomes completely incomprehensible how such a thing is possible. Of course, like any other games, "Minesweeper" is also annoying. However, it will take a week, and you will again want to increase the minefield, break the time record and boast to your friends.
