Advice for minesweeper

Beginning of the game

The goal is to get an opening, i.e. to discover a significant number of unmined squares in order to continue to sweep by identifying known patterns.

starting example with a beautiful opening

 

On this example, there are several areas where the mine hunt is easy, and the player has few chances to be blocked in the beginning of the game.

But pay attention, openings are a double-edged sword… Indeed, if a large opening is discovered, that means that the density of mines is higher in the non-discovered areas. The mine sweeping will be all the more difficult…

 

You should also avoid placing superfluous flags

As soon as you can avoid placing a flag (in the isolated areas at least), it should be done: it is a considerable waste of time to place them, not mentioning a flag is not beautiful.

 

in the corners : you should not place flag on the 2 mines
at the edge : here you should not click (left) only on the green box without placing the 3 flags
in the center : idem, do not touch the mine
