How To: Begin a Minesweeper game

Begin a Minesweeper game

This how-to video describes how to play the game Minesweeper. To begin, simply click anywhere on the board; the narrator suggests the corner out of personal preference. If you remove a group of squares with a single click you can begin working on flagging mines, but otherwise try clicking until you get a workable section. Each successful click will display a number. This number describes how many mines this square is touching. If you feel that you know where a mine is, you can right click on that square and it will flag the square. For example, if there is a block that displays the number one and there is only one un-clicked square touching it, you know there is a mine and can flag it. Continue to flag mines and left click spaces that you feel are safe until all of the safe squares have been clicked.
