Kaboom: A cruel but fair Minesweeper

What if you could play Minesweeper against the computer? I describe how I created a game that is always fair but will punish you for every mistake


Kaboom is a Minesweeper game that does not determine the mines beforehand, but makes them up as you play. While that sounds simple, it was surprisingly hard to get right and required me to do pretty interesting things, so I want to describe how I created the game.

You can play the game at https://pwmarcz.pl/kaboom.
