Minesweeper is a single-player video game. The object of the game is to clear an abstract minefield without detonating a mine. The game has been written for many system platforms in use today.
Minesweeper cannot always be solved with 100% certainty, and may require the occasional use of probability to flag the square most likely to have a mine. In other words, one must sometimes guess to solve a minesweeper puzzle.
Dweebs (“Cousins to Nerds”) were a larger, soft and chewy version of the popular candy Nerds produced by the Willy Wonka Candy Company. They were introduced in the early 1990s, and were only available for a few years before they were discontinued.

Introduced in 1988, the back of the Heartthrob box read: “On looks alone pick your “heartthrob” from three photo cards. Then guess which guys your friends will pick. If you’re correct, you could win this dreamy dating game. You could fall in love at first sight! But be careful! Personality cards will reveal more about the guys. Some of what you learn makes them more appealing, but other things are a real turn-off. You must decide if looks or personality are more important. Bet you didn’t realize that Johnny cracks his knuckles and bites his fingernails. Could you tell that Brad still sleeps with a Teddy Bear? And what about Greg! Did you know he eats bugs to gross out girls?”
