Minehunt: Terms

 

I attempted to use these terms with some rigour:

Term Definition
Ambiguous situation of the board or part of the board in which it is not possible to decide where the bombs are.
Bombcount number of bombs around a cell; the number in the cell.
Cell a position on the board
Configuration arrangement of bombs
Covered cell that is not yet touched
Flag indicator planted on a cell where the player assumes a bomb
Flagged bearing a flag
Grid the arrangement of the total set of cells; has a width and height.
Island contiguous area of covered cells
Sea contiguous area of uncovered cells with no bombs and at least one cell with zero bombs around it.
Shore cells forming the frontier between a sea and an island
Uncovered cell that was clicked and now shows its bombcount

They are my own invention, perhaps not very good.
