Solving Minesweeper, by Magnus Hoff

By implementing a full solver for Minesweeper, we were able to develop a variant of the game that gets rid of the bane of Minesweeper; when you risk losing the game randomly after you have invested time and thought into solving almost all of the board. This version is different from the original only in the situations that would require random guessing, so I would suggest that this version is strictly more fun than the original game.

Automating Minesweeper into a game of chance, then backing up a step and removing chance while leaving multi-square logic unsolved.
