Worth hours of crying

For years I spend literal hours into the night trying to beat that expert board, and spend many more crying after each fail. On this day, 2 February 2016, 2 AM, I finally completed the expert board. My life is complete. I have completed the meaning of life. 10/10 would cry and win again. [Real review] This is a very exciting and different take on the classical Minesweeper we've all played since windows 3.1. The many new game modes that they've come up with are unique and pretty cool to play, and daily challenges are pretty fun to play with as well. Also, this one has a real, dummy-proof tutorial so that now you actually know what you're doing!

The Classic is back

I like how this has always been part of Windows! It has gone through the ages, Windows 3.1-10

The ads are annoying.

The new styles of gameplay (Daily Challenges and Adventure) are excellent. Especially the concept of "multiple lives" is very important for a game like this, considering the fact that a minesweeper board cannot always be solved by using pure deduction alone. These new things have made a typically boring game much more enjoyable and playable for 1-2 hours at a stretch! The ads should be disabled, or at least they should pertain to Microsoft merchandise only (and not some car companies).

Minesweeper really pops!!

It is always a real challenge. I love trying to do every game to have a Perfect month. Love the variety and just keep on coming back to play especially if I lose because of a difficult game. It makes me want to be a winner!!!

Love this game, but...

I have paid for the premium version for the second time. I hate the fact that all previous prizes have been deleted as if I didn't complete them! And today, almost two weeks after paying for the second year, all my December daily challenges were reset as if I hadn't been doing them! This really needs fixed, I like to look back and see what I have done, and I like to have records. What is premium worth if all previous prizes and challenges are not shown! Now, on 2/7/2016 my game hasn't loaded for 3 days! I paid for this!

Love it, but...

A little less timed puzzles in the specials would suit me just fine. In fact, skip those altogether and I'll be more than satisfied.

morning brain fun

Helps me dig my mind out of the sleep drowsiness in the mornings and adds flavor to my coffee.
