Minesweeper has to be one of the most well-known minigames of all time, no? I spent my fair share of Sunday mornings playing minesweeper in my Windows XP computer...

I am excited to tell you that I just released the alpha version of my “Pydont's” book, a book that compiles all my “Pydon't” articles. You can get the book at leanpub: leanpub.com/pydonts.

A screenshot of my implementation of Minesweeper

I made a remake of Minesweeper when I was trying to sharpen my Python skills and you can see above a screenshot of my version of the game.

You can find the code in this GitHub repo GitHub repo, where you can also find a Windows executable.

The game is fairly easy to play:

  • The objective is to find all of the mines.
  • Using the left mouse button reveals what is beneath the cell clicked. Clicking a mine means game over.
  • If you are sure of the location of a mine, use the right mouse button to flag it.
  • A numbered cell indicates how many mines are present in its neighbouring cells.
