The goal of Minesweeper Versus is to uncover more bombs than your opponent. The location of most mines is discovered through a logical process, but some require guessing, usually with a 50-50 chance of being correct. Clicking on the game board will reveal what is hidden underneath the chosen square or squares (a large number of blank squares may be revealed in one go if they are adjacent to each other). Some squares are blank while others contain numbers (from 1 to 8), with each number being the number of mines adjacent to the uncovered square.
Depending on the type of game, you can win or lose Elo. A highscore can be seen in the lobby.
You can play against your friends where neither win nor lose elo.
