Freshmen year in college (2005, for those keeping track), I had a school project that was to build John Conway's Game Of Life in Java. The whole time I spent working on it, I couldn't stop thinking that this seemed a LOT like MineSweeper. So then, one day, I was bored and got a burst of inspiration to turn it into MineSweeper. But, alas, I couldn't find my original source code…So I wrote it from scratch.

It took me one day to get the gameplay basics down, and then over the next week, I added in the artwork, and the options dialogs. If you want, check out the source here.

I am pretty proud of this one. It was the quickest complete project I've ever done.
