As shown above, this game is an easy win for Maker. It is therefore sensible to consider a biased version of this game. The following result is a slightly weakened version of a theorem of Chv´ atal and Erd˝os [21]. It determines up to a constant factor the amount of extra power Breaker needs in order to win this game. 3. √ Maker has a winning strategy in the (1 : b) triangle game FK3√(n) for every b ≤ n/2. On the other hand, Breaker has a winning strategy if b ≥ 2 n. √ Proof. Assume first that b ≤ n/2.

However, this is clearly impossible, as every cut contains at least n − 1 > i − 1 edges. Since the triangle game and the connectivity game (as well as many other MakerBreaker games) are an easy win for Maker, one would like to give Breaker more power so that he has a better chance of winning. One way to do so, first suggested by Chv´ atal and Erd˝ os [21], is by allowing Breaker to claim several board elements per move rather than just one. This leads to the following definition. 1. Let p and q be positive integers, let X be a finite set, and let F ⊆ 2X be a family of subsets of X.

Such games were thus coined box games by Chv´ atal and Erd˝ os [21], who denoted the (p : q) game (X, {A1 , . . , An }) by Box(p, q; |A1 |, . . , |An |) and referred to the players as BoxMaker and BoxBreaker, respectively. Studying box games, one quickly realizes what the optimal strategies of both players should look like. 4. Isolating a vertex and box games 37 boxes are too large compared to others, then BoxMaker should in fact ignore these boxes and balance the rest). If this is indeed true, then we immediately obtain an algorithm to determine the winner of Box(p, q; a1 , .
