Minesweeper

Recommended Posts

Let's be honest, we've all played minesweeper before. Some of us more than others. I'm just curious as to how many. I'll start off by showing my stats.

I figured that 1000 wins was a good place to stop and I haven't touched it for a while now. I'm really itching to get into it again, but it's just so addicting that I don't know if I really should start again.

So who here has played?

I have played a lot of minesweeper on Advanced. One notable game was one where I actually uncovered a 7 and an 8.

EDIT: screen capture from about 4 years ago

Its been so long since I played the original minesweeper. It was a pastime for me when I was around 7. My brother gave me a small tandy that he used when he was younger, and thats what I played minesweeper on. Windows version 3.0 haha. I remember it being really fun though. Hypersegue: I remember getting warcraft 2 to work on that tandy, lol that was a day to remember.

I've played many a game of minesweeper, though on Vista and Windows 7 I've found MinesweeperX does a good job of giving just the basic interface without all the eye candy they tried to add in. And it also has some good stat saving and game replay capturing for those that really care.

I played it through my high school during the recesses. Probably a hundred games in total with the hardest difficulty.

Ah, Minesweeper. The great game of luck followed by precise skill. I think the summer between 9th and 10th grade, I did nothing but play Mine Sweeper and Magic The Gathering: Shandalar. I had so little contact with humans that I started to forget basic words...lol.

Oh crud, I'm not here *goes into 5 months hiding again*

"I order all my sandwiches with mayonnaise

I'm a wiz at Minesweeper, I could play for days

Once you see my sweet moves you're gonna stay amazed

My fingers movin' so fast I'll set the place ablaze"

This game got me through a job one summer. I don't play it any more, but that desk job absolutely needed minesweeper.
