Largest Game of Minesweeper hides over 38k mines

Any PC gamer that has been around for a while has probably played the game Minesweeper on their Windows PC. Back in the day, this was one of the only games that Microsoft shipped pre-installed with its OS. If somehow you are unfamiliar with the game, it's a simple game where you try to uncover all the tiny squares that don't have mines behind them.

If you uncover a single mine, your game is over. The game had several difficulty levels that each introduced a larger playing field with more mines for you to ferret out. Each of the little squares that didn't have a mine had a number on them to show you how many mines they touched leaving you to deduce which squares were hiding mines.

A company called Cinemassive makes video walls and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of minesweeper, the company linked together 24 big screen TVs for some expert level Minesweeper. The goal is to clean out 38,799 mines to win.

So far, no one has been able to beat the game, but you can apply to try it out remotely. The company will select ten people to try their hand at uncovering all the mines. Check out the video to see the massive Minesweeper game in action.
