I've been playing a fair bit of Minesweeper in the past few weeks. (It started when I wanted to play a game while listening to a CD, and that was one of the games I had that didn't require a CD in the drive.) But that's not why I'm a geek.
I've been missing some sleep because of Minesweeper; I stay up late playing for no coherent reason, in vain hopes of some sort of satisfaction. This is very geeky, certainly, but this wasn't my point either.
My point is this: I've started playing without marking the mines, just remembering or reconstructing where the mines are.
And I win doing this.
Even on expert mode.
And sometimes I set high scores. (though not on expert mode)
I am such a geek.
