I've never seen one for minesweeper.
Do you play with custom maxed size and mines like me?

Is your first click always the same? Mine is; top left corner followed by the bottom left corner if I don't like what I get on the top LOL.

I don't know about a hand-held one, but I have an old, faithful laptop (486x75) compaq that my wife'* been nagging me to post on e-bay. Yes, it works and yes, it has minesweeper! Oh, only the battery doesn't work, but I have new cells to replace those in the dead battery.

Anyhow, it runs Windows 3.11.

I'll let it go real cheap. Probably for the cost of a hand-held almost-anything. Shipping will cost some coin, though.

Oh, I have a spare laptop (same model) to include with the deal!

I can't do that at work because if the company finds anything on our computers that they didn't put there the agent will get fined $400 plus the cost of a technician coming out to remove it and would get written up also, not worth it! Thanks anyways!!!
