Tip #8: Playing Minesweeper

To activate Minesweeper:
Kindle (Original): Click ALT+M
Kindle 2: Click ALT+SHIFT+M

How to Play:
Use the 5-way lever to move about the grid

Click the 5-way on any square. If you hit a mine, you loose.

M- Place a mine where you think one may be.

Complete the board to win!
