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 abstract 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.

Kid's word game to make 3 and 4 letter words, played on 4x4 grid.

I've never played the game with a child, but I'd think you'd be better oft with a small computer program that generated random letters on screen when enter key was pressed. You could skew selections, and perhaps generate some two letter entries to have higher probability of creating words. The letter ball sticks to the side of the popup cube.

I'm guessing only 3&4 letter words to make it fairer to kid's with small vocabulary, and parunts who can'z spull.
