Channelling the classic computer game, Minesweeper Postcards allow you to send some analog love. The single-player video game that use to be ubiquitous with Microsoft faded into the background around a decade ago; however, these cards created by the Korea Institute of Design Connect Design allow for real-life game play and thus, the revival of this retro pastime.

The concept behind the game prompted players to click around an abstract minefield without detonating a mine. This time around, your mouse is now replaced with a nail or coin. Each card comes either hard or easy mode with either 120 or 80 mines, in addition to flag and smiley face stickers. So, it is truly like you are back behind your computer screen.
