Yes. Old news. VERY old news.

From 2007:

Alt-M on the home page brings up Minesweeper. Commands are listed at the top.

EDIT: Minesweeper was included in all kindle models with keyboards (K2/DX/DXG/K3).

Except on the K3, you need Alt+Shift+M:
http://www.geek.com/articles/gadgets...grab-20100930/

And from Minesweeper, you can switch to GoMoku by pressing the G key, and back to Minesweeper with the M key.

EDIT: I just added the above link to the K3 index wiki (built-in games).

The minesweeper game and other how to do stuff using the keyboard is sorta hidden in plane sight.

Here is a link that shows how to use them.

With all the content contained in MobileRead, stumbling upon any particularly useful tidbit of knowledge without knowing it exists is like "looking for a needle in a haystack" (or more like looking for a PARTICULAR needed in a huge pile of needles). These discoveries take an especially large amount of time when you do not know that the needle in question even exists, and you are not aware that you should search for it.

Yes!
And it is particularly annoying if the only way you find that unknown needle is by sitting on it!
