I'm glad you got it worked out!
I definitely do not tutorialize the core Minesweeper-esque numbers.
I've thought a little bit about how I might do that in the future, but not quite sure how to go about it.
I played this when it was first released, and thought it was a very interesting idea. I wanted to come back and check out how many collectibles were hanging around now. But I'm glad to have found some comfort in your Haiku instead!
