In this puzzle game, you must clear the Minesweeper board containing hidden mines, without detonating any of them. Use the number clues to help determine the number of neighboring mines in each section of the board.
In 247 Minesweeper, mines and flags resemble the classic Minesweeper icons of a naval mine and flag. Other 247 Minesweeper seasonal variations, however, feature different themed icons such as Spring’s bumble bee mine and flower flags.
Minesweeper cells have 3 distinct states — covered, uncovered, and flagged. A covered cell is displayed as a blank, clickable cell. Uncovered cells are exposed and unclickable. Flagged cells indicate a potential mine location and are marked by the player.
A player has only one life per game. The first click in any game cannot result in uncovering a mine. A standard click, or left click, will uncover a cell on the board. A right click will toggle flagging. Uncovered cells will either display a blank tile (which will also uncover all adjacent non-mined cells), or feature a number indicating how many mines are either adjacent and/or diagonally to it.
Clicking the Flagging Mode Button, below the game board, will toggle Flagging Mode on and off. When Flagging Mode is “off”, a red border will appear around the board. When Flagging Mode is “on”, a green border will appear around the board.
Clicking the Emoji Button, above the board, will begin a new game.
To win Minesweeper, a player must “explore” all non-mined cells. The player does not need to flag all mined cells to win.
