Mine sweeping (Posted on 2006-04-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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).

Someone should probably check that for accuracy...
