Should be mentioned that it's most probably easier to run a script that solves this puzzle that to explain minesweeper to the majority of people, so this captcha seems pretty useless 188.8.131.52 15:56, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
- Writing a script to solve Minesweeper is a great exercise and helps to build a guaranteed-solvable game (which, IMO, is a good thing), but it won't usually start with image recognition. I'm not sure how hard it would be to write an image solver, especially if - unlike in this example - you'd need to dig some cells to finish solving it. 184.108.40.206 16:20, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
I think that it would be better to explain why there is mine in B3 and D3 (due to the ones) because you then have the full solution. I think that the curent explanation isn't complete enough for someone who don't know minesweeper to understand the solution Maybe it is only me but I think that it would be less confusing to have column marked with letter and line with number. i don't know if there is any standard for that. I am used to excel way of doing it 220.127.116.11 16:10, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
I am soooo disappointed that the cursed minesweeper game is not playable. 18.104.22.168 16:13, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
Is something supposedto happen when I click on a box? I tried this in Chrome, IE, and Firefox, and nothing happens. --22.214.171.124 16:18, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
Hello. I have edited the image to include flags or bombs to mark the places. But as a new user I am not allowed to upload images. If somebody is willing to receive them I could email them. Rps (talk) 17:10, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
The title is eerily similar to Mein Kampf
The explanation repeats "this is hard because in Minesweeper you're supposed to press the buttons without mines" a lot.126.96.36.199 18:23, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
I think that explanation misses the fact that images in captcha are in randomized order and do not match with actual position on real board and are actually, which can be deducted from fact it's using different colors and font, from multiple separate games. Therefore 'solving' it gives no actual information. Kalumniatoris (talk) 20:39, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
