A flat or three-dimensional playing field is divided into adjacent cells (squares, hexagons, cubes, etc.), some of which are "mined"; the number of "mined" cells is known. The aim of the game is to open all the cells that do not contain mines.
The player opens the cells, trying not to open the cell with the mine. Opening the cell with a mine, he loses. Mines are placed after the first move, so it is impossible to lose on the first move. If there is no mine under the open cell, a number appears indicating how many cells adjacent to the newly opened one are "mined" (in each variant of the game, the neighborhood is determined in its own way); using these numbers, the player tries to calculate the location of mines, but sometimes even in the middle and at the end of the game, some cells still have to open at random. If there are no mines under the neighboring cells, some "non-mined" area is opened up to the cells with digits. "Mined" cell, the player may mark, so you don't accidentally open them. Having opened all "not mined" cells, the player wins.
There are variants of the game with a field and/or cells of non-rectangular shape, or in three-dimensional space, multi-user options.
At some positions of mines it is impossible to calculate their location, and the player is faced with the need to open the cells at random. Minesweeper for Windows has an interactive field, if all possible combinations on the field are already open, then the explosion will not follow even if you click at random on any unopened portion of the field.
Often, the complexity of the field is estimated using the value of 3BV (Bechtel's Board Benchmark Value). This value is numerically equal to the minimum number of direct cell openings (in the standard "Minesweeper" option to open cells only with the left mouse button, without the use of flags and double clicks) required to open the entire field. It should be noted that this value displays only the number of certain actions in the ideal case, with a certain manner of play, and not the difficulty of placement for a particular player.
