Minesweeper Puzzle #1


(click to enlarge)

I’m afraid I wasn’t able to recreate the pop-out effect for the unfilled squares, but the area to be solved is the top left corner. There are 6 mines left.

(for those who read the blog before the edit, sorry – the puzzle isn’t solvable without prior information, so there are other questions given here)

Puzzle questions are (EDIT 2):
1. Under this circumstance, which 2 squares would you open?
2. If, out of Q1, the sum of the numbers in the 2 squares is 6, what would you do?
3. If, out of Q1, the sum of the numbers in the 2 squares is 3, what would you conclude?
4. Which squares in the 1st column are the safest to open from the current position? Which is the most useful square to open out of these squares?

The notation is as follows – Columns are numbered from 1-2 and rows are labeled from A to J. Comments and solutions please!
