EU4 Minesweeper

Now on 1.33! Discord Server[]

Have you ever been in the middle of a long game of EU4, and thought to yourself, man, I wish this game had a nice chill puzzle mode to enjoy after defeating all of Europe in a coalition?

Have you ever wondered how much more fun EU4 would be with a giant game grid in the middle of the Atlantic?

Do you love Minesweeper? Alternatively, do you enjoy really dumb mod ideas?

If you answered either yes or no to any of the above, then this mod is for you!


This mod adds a 10x10 grid of minesweeper in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. Gameplay for regular nations remains unchanged, apart from a slight difficulty increase to colonizers due to the wasteland square in the Atlantic.

The player can, at any time, choose to switch to the Minesweeper country. There, you can play Minesweeper to your heart's content while the game is paused, and whenever you want (even if it's in the middle of a game), switch back to EU4 and continue your 100 development tall Arabia challenge!


The Mod works on EU4 1.33.x . It is not Ironman compatible, and will not work with existing save files.

To play Minesweeper, switch to the Minesweeper Country (or start a new game as that country), then use the decision to start a game! The grid will populate with icons.

You can choose one of the preset difficulties, or choose a custom number of bombs anywhere from 1 to 100! Each game is randomly generated and different from the last!

Once a game has started, you can click the icon to open the province view beneath it. Use the development buttons to play minesweeper. Administrative development clears a tile, Military development flags the tile, and diplomatic development is the middle mouse interaction in Minesweeper (it clears the neighbors of a tile which has the right number of flags).

If you clear a bomb, the game is over, but don't worry, you can just as easily start a new one!

There is a tutorial in-game, so don't worry about forgetting any of this.


Seeloewe: Basically a dev for this mod, quite literally wouldn't have been possible without him, he can attest to how often I pestered him with questions.
Theo: Helped me figure out how models worked in EU4 for the tiles.
Iemand: Helped with testing a lot
Ruthenian_Bias: Helped with testing

Code and Contributing

If you have any suggestions, please comment them below and I will try my best to address them if I think they will benefit the ✨experience✨. Alternatively, hit me up on discord (Sol_InvictusXLII#1306), and we can chat.

The code for this mod can be found at the GitHub Repository linked here[]. Please give it a star and maybe fork it or something so it looks like more people care about my github work lmao.

But seriously, feel free to use the code as you wish, and make your own contributions and whatever.

This is amazing! Thank you. I wished that something exactly like this would exist. I'm glad there are other people thinking similarly. Could you also make a mod like this for Voltaire's nightmare?

@thezipcreator that is very strange, can you message me on discord about this?
