Red face Any tips

I know this may seem very straightforward to most, but I am utter shit at this game. Any tips or is it as it seems, just trial and error...

D'oh! Just take a picture of the end result then play the same game again. Done.

Dr Zleek's Gamercard
What in particular are you looking for? general strategy or tips? I'm not sure of your knowledge of the rules or whatever so I don't want to seem like a condescending a-hole lol.

2 things that help me a lot-

1) When you start a game, if you see a blank square (white but no numbers in it) that means every square connected to it (up/down, left/right, and all diagonals) has no mines in it. continue clicking on every square connected to it and it should clear out a good chunk of space or at least pop up a bunch of numbered blocks.

2) When you find a mine, realized that every numbered block connected to it that mine counts. For examples, let's say you have a 3*3 cube and a mine is in the middle. let's also say that every square on the outside of that little cube only have a 1. that means the '1' is the mine in the middle, and every square connected to the ones are empty, because that 1 is the mine in the middle. This is why you want to find a lot of squares with 1 so it's easier to guess.
