 Mine sweeping (Posted on 2006-04-11)
In the popular game of Minesweeper, the object is to find all the mines. If you click on a square it shows a number from 0 to 8 indicating how many of the adjacent squares contain mines. If you click on a mine, you lose.

Can you figure out where the mines are in the below board? Blank squares indicate that it is unknown whether there is a mine in that space. Squares with numbers contain no mines (or you would have already lost).

Haha, no sooner said than done:

`+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+|   | 2 | 2 | 2 | * | 2 | * |+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+|   | * | * |   |   | 3 |   |+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+| 2 | 3 | 3 | 3 | * | 3 | 1 |+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+|   | * |   | 2 | * |   | * |+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+| 2 | 3 |   | 3 | 2 | 3 | 2 |+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+| * | 2 | * | * |   |   | * |+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+|   | 2 |   | 2 | 1 | 2 | * |+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+`

Someone should probably check that for accuracy...
