Yeah, that game. Its definitely a gradpa guitar and does not require DX10. For anyone who likes puzzles or math or probability or whatnot, this game is remarkably fun.
It's also taking over my life a bit. I don't know if anyone else out there is a minesweeper fanatic but I am quickly becoming one. I already have put together a playbook of some of the less obvious patterns.
I can finish most intermediate maps in 2-3 minutes or so, and I'm getting to the point where I should be able to beat expert level games, but I usually get down to the last 10 mines and encounter a mine that can only be guessed, or (this happens a lot) I misclick.
People may assume that since this is a game that is included with Windows its not particularly interesting, but this is one of the most challenging logic puzzle games I have ever encountered.
Anyone else play? If so it could be cool to post some best times for maps etc. Obviously I don't trust anyone here to be remotely honest at measuring their own logi-peen so I believe there's a webapp called Minesweeper X that keeps you from cheating.
