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.

77. Board Game: Felsberger Nuggets [Average Rating:0.00 Unranked]
Board Game: Felsberger Nuggets
4 circles in 2x2 grid, with 4 positions in each circle...scant information in BGG on how to play.

If I understand this right, it's a puzzle not a game. the disks move via a slot from cirle to circle. You're trying to get each disc in the same color as the section of the wheel.

It also seems since there are four dimples for marbles on each "wheel" that the four sections could be 2x2 squares, assuming that you must rotate 90 degrees. If you could rotate 45 degrees then you could use four octagons instead of "wheels."

I think these grids are sort of 4x4?

81. Board Game: Flip to Win Travel Bingo [Average Rating:5.00 Unranked]
Board Game: Flip to Win Travel Bingo
Kid's Bingo game

As when I played this as a kid, only the person spotting the desired thing could use it. So if my brother saw a cow, and cow was on both cards, only he could use it.

I don't remember size of board I played. It was two pieces of pasteboard riveted together. Over each object to be spotted was a red plastic window that you could slide. Mom and Dad must have been happy for a little peace and quiet on some of those long road trip in the 1960s.

85. Board Game: Forma o Colore [Average Rating:6.17 Unranked]
Board Game: Forma o Colore
The designer created two versions of this game. Not sure exactly how the versions played out. The first version was named Forma o Colore and I think it was included in German magazine Focus after its initial release. It was subsequently redesigned to use a rubber pad with markers that stick into cavities in the pad. This version is now marketed by name OXXO.

Play a piece of flip a piece to get 4 in a row. the twist is that one player is playing to get colors, either red or blue, in a line and the other is playing to get either letter, X or O, in a line.

See Rubik's Magic for a list of similar games.

87. Board Game: Four Field Kono [Average Rating:4.51 Unranked]
Board Game: Four Field Kono
Quintessential strategy game between two players with each side having eight identical men.

I've found this mostly refered to as Four Field Kono. Usually played on the points of a 3x3 grid.

Added at suggestion of Clark D. Rodeffer (CDRodeffer)

Board Game: Garden-party
Game for 2-4 players. Each player gets a 4x4 plot in the garden in which to place the plant cards that are collected.

Doesn't seem to be any significant to 4x4 grid. It seems winner just needs to collect 4 different plant cards.

98. Board Game: Gone Fishing! [Average Rating:5.35 Overall Rank:18865]
Board Game: Gone Fishing!
Sort of a stretch, but one player does control a 4x4 grid which is the lake. The other player moves around the lake in an outer concentric square. So the game is perhaps more properly on a 6x6 grid?

Having two seperate playing areas is an interesting twist on a 4x4 game.

100. Board Game: The Green Pipe [Average Rating:7.25 Unranked]
Board Game: The Green Pipe
This is a rather convoluted strategy game where the players are trying to guess hidden information supplied by the other player. It is played on a board with a 4x4 grid. Two coins placed on random squares mark the head and tail of the pipe. Each player then draws a secret pipe between the two ends and puts three holes in the pipe.

Sort of a battleship type guessing game.

For a graphic for the game see:
