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.

110. Board Game: Hut ab! [Average Rating:4.50 Unranked]
Board Game: Hut ab!
Each player has 5 stones and three hats. No "hidden" information in that stone has to be played first then can be covered with a hat on another turn. You have to remember if a particular hat has a stone under it or not, but the information was available to the player when the hat was played.

This is evidently a homemade game set. Although I've seen the game mentuioned on the web, I don't think that a commercially produced game exists.

119. Board Game: King O' Kings [Average Rating:4.75 Unranked]
Board Game: King O' Kings
Design Stretch for 4x4 Grid

The center playing area is a 4x4 grid which forms the battlefield where players interact. But a players pieces are entered from a 3x4 staging area on the sides of the main battlefield. You could view the staging area as a "tweek" to make the basic 4x4 game a little more complicated. With an extra staging area each side can slowly move men into the battlefield.

Basic idea is to create stacks of men with yours on top to make Kings. Men cannot leave center play area once they enter.

King's Court was similar, but with more men...
