Here’s a step-by-step approach to fixing those Minesweeper blues:

The Basic Refresh

Start with the classic “turn it off and on again” approach. Close the Minesweeper tab or window and reopen it. Sometimes, a simple refresh is all it takes!

Check Your Connection

Make sure your internet is working smoothly. Try loading a different website to rule out connection problems.

Browser Behavior

Try a different browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.). This can help pinpoint if the problem lies within your usual browser.

Clear the Cache

Old, stored data can cause glitches. Clearing your browser’s cache can help. (You can find this option in your browser’s settings).

Disable Extensions

Sometimes, browser extensions mess with how websites work. Temporarily disable any extensions and try the game again.

If the above steps don’t help, it might be a temporary issue on Google’s side. Wait a little while and try again later. Check online forums or social media for news of any widespread Google Minesweeper problems. Others might be experiencing the same issue.

Remember: Google Minesweeper is a simple, but addictive game. Hopefully, these troubleshooting tips will get you back to clicking and uncovering those sneaky mines in no time!
