P-K4 Games
Compiled by fredthebear

Site under construction. This is an old, original collection, too often ignored.

A little bit of everything. Some common, some uncommon. Most games will find a new home later on in specific opening collections, especially the Scandinavian collection.

Thank you mughug, jungol.
