Distract yourself with multiplayer Minesweeper

Andy Baio points us to "Multiplayer Minesweeper — you probably need the distraction right now."

From Wikipedia:

The objective of the game is to clear a rectangular board containing hidden "mines" or bombs without detonating any of them, with help from clues about the number of neighboring mines in each field...

Minesweeper has its origins in the earliest mainframe games of the 1960s and 1970s. The earliest ancestor of Minesweeper was Jerimac Ratliff's Cube.
