Abstract Abstract. This paper discusses a chess problem, a checkers problem, a Go problem, a Domineering problem, and the sum of all four of these problems. These challenging problems were originally entitled Four Games for Gardner and presented at Gathering for Gardner, IV. The solutions of these problems illustrate the power of extended thermography and the notion of rich environments, the relevance and utility of a broad theory of games which may include kos and other loopy positions, and the robustness of this theory to a variety of interpretations of the rules. It also demonstrates the relevance of this branch of mathematics to the classical board games.
