Minesweeper: Makes you want to play, doesn't it? W hether you've ever played it or not, almost everyone has heard of Minesweeper. It's one of the classic games that come standard with the Windows operating systems (Start > Programs > Games > Minesweeper).

According to Wikipedia, Minesweeper is a single-player computer game invented by Robert Donner in 1989. According to me, Minesweeper is a great way to put off writing papers and doing other such work (it's amazing what can hold your interest when there's something else you should be doing).

I really started playing Minesweeper during my first semester in graduate school. Quickly, I found that the more papers I had to write, the better my Minesweeper scores became. So, as an extension of my interest in Minesweeper, I developed this website to compile tips on playing Minesweeper, information I found on the internet about the game, and other assorted odds and ends that other Minesweepers might find interesting.
