The rules of Minesweeper /Useful tips
The goal of the game is to find the empty squares and avoid the mines. To win the game, you have to uncover all the squares that do not contain mines.
Each uncovered square contains numbers (1 to 8), showing how many mines are adjacent to the square. To help avoid hitting a mine, the location of a suspected mine can be marked by flagging it. The maximum number of mines depends on the type and size of the board.
