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.

The new(er) version of Knizia's Dragon Master comprises of the building of a 4-by-4 grid out of square tiles. Each of these tiles has a number, and one player scores the rows while the other scores the columns.
