GNOME Mines is a puzzle game where you search for hidden mines. Flag the
spaces with mines as quickly as possible to make the board a safer place. You
win the game when you’ve flagged every mine on the board. Be careful not to
trigger one, or the game is over!
You can select the size of the field you want to play on at the start of the
game. If you get stuck, you can ask for a hint: there’s a time penalty, but
that’s better than hitting a mine!
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
