Re: Minesweeper!
@sachinee- Yes, I went through a Mahjong phase, but it never kept my mind as engaged as minesweeper. I think it is more of a zen relaxation game. I pull it out when I want some quiet music playing and some downtime.

Re: Minesweeper!
Loved Minesweeper! That was my fallback when I didn't feel like playing Solitaire. Though Solitaire was always my go-to when I was bored (or when someone was on the phone and I couldn't use the Internet.

Minesweeper!
Spider is clealry the best of the solitaire versions, but nothing will compare with the day I discovered minesweeper. I honestly still remember the day in the college dorm when me and my friends discovered it and actually sat down and worked out the logic for playing it based on the various number patterns. We obsessed about it for a couple of days and I still feel a love for it.

Then we moved on to Scorched Earth. :)
