Each square contains a number in its upper right corner. That number dictates how many X'd squares are adjacent to that one. For example, a square with a 3 in it would indicate that three of the squares around it should have an X in them. You just have to figure out which 3 squares. I put a dot in squares I know should NOT contain X's. The highest number that can appear in a square is a 4, though there aren't any in this particular puzzle. But if there was a square marked with a four that would mean that all four squares directly around it would contain an X. Squares diagonally aligned are irrelevant. http://www.esnips.com/doc/883b0fd7-0bcf-461c-a0c3-cf979418a8cd/8x8smGrid Please let me know if the link is still not working.

Similarities? yes, so possibly anybody who enjoys Minesweeper might enjoy this grid puzzle. Or anybody who likes traditional logic without the speed, stress or memory factors of Minesweeper. I personally prefer laid-back puzzles that I have to think hard to solve but that I can take my time with. I will see what I can do about the link.

But my eyes are bleeding and I have to get up early tomorrow, so I must force myself to stop (for now)._________________Freedom is not free
