This list is for games played in the cells of a board with a 4x4 grid (16 playing positions). The quintessential game to me would be an abstratct strategy game played on the 4x4 grid with just plain black and white men.

Some games are included that somehow extend the 4x4 footprint are included.

* Pylos stacks spheres as a mechanic to increase the complexity of the basic 4x4 grid.
* Score Four is included since the balls are stacked in the 4x4 grid and there are never more than 16 playing positions at once. (There are a number of versions in database under different names.)
* Some of the children's 4x4 bingo games are added but not all.

So this list is necessarily somewhat arbitrary.

4x4: 16 tiles are played into a 4x4 grid.

Objective:
Placement tiles into grid to score points.

Perfect Information: Yes

Deterministic: Yes

Combinatorial Game: Yes.

Impartial or Partisan: Partisan.
I think you could get a situation where there were three(or n) tiles left. The player to play makes a play to score points, even though the second player will place the last playable tile. So there would be one orphan tile left. Contrast this with the player to play playing one of the three left tiles in such a way that he scores few points, but plays the last payable tile. So need to find such a black swan position to prove this.

Posed this as question to be answered in 16! forum:
Is game partisan? -or- Is Black swan board game position possible?

Design Stretch for 4x4 Grid:
Tiles can be rotated into four different orientations beyond simple placement into one of the 16 positions of the grid.

Availability:
* Web published game on 4x4 Grid.
* Never was a boxed set

4x4: The 16 playing pieces form a wall which is 4 pieces wide and up to 4 pieces high, thus forming a 4x4 grid.

Objective:
The objective is to get a four in a row.

Perfect Information: Yes.
Players can learn/remember patterns on both sides of wall piece. Also pattern sheets are provided as a crutch.

Deterministic: Yes.

Combinatorial Game: Yes

Impartial or Partisan: Partisan.

Design Stretch for 4x4 Grid:
Although 4x4 is a placement game on a 4x4 grid, it cannot be played on a flat board since each player owns a different side of wall. A piece in the wall will have the same color on both sides, but it may have different shapes on opposite sides.

Design Stretch for 4x4 Grid:
The overall grid is 10*10 in size which is divided in a 25 modular 2x2 sections, which are placed in a 5x5 grid. Each modular 2x2 section has multiple colors. The corners of four adjacent modular units form a 4x4 square which is a placement position. If all four squares in the scoring block are your color, then you can play your man onto the board in that placement position.

The gist is that the posts of the 5x5 grid are on the vertices of a 4x4 grid of spaces. Thus the scoring area is 4x4.
