 Jun1 comment Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play Because the only thing that matters is how many unsolvable (need guessing) configurations are there with n mines in m space and what are the odds of solving them. Jun1 revised Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play added 254 characters in body Jun1 comment Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play And as a not so significant aside, people can do this pretty quickly with simple logic for a decently large sized board (expert) without making mistakes, so I am not sure what the author of the paper was talking about when he said all solvers are slow... Jun1 comment Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play I am not looking for the best possible algorithm. I just want to know the odds of winning perfect play. Not how to win with the least total computation and the fanciest heuristics. It think it got sidetracked Jun1 comment Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play That would seem to simplify the problem, not make it harder... Btw, the nine I was talking about are on the boundry, it would make zero sense to consider a 3x3 square. Jun1 comment Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play 1. It does (calculate this for all available squares. If none are zero, then guessing is a must anyway, and this way the program can pick the lowest) , and two, I just want to know the odds of it being beaten with perfect play.

Jun1 revised Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play added 483 characters in body Jun1 comment Odds of winning at minesweeper with perfect play Its very interesting, but since I want to know a simpler piece of information (what are the odds, not what algorithm will get me those odds) is it possible?
