Pic Arete is Strings-and-Coins (Dots-and-Boxes) without the extra move. In the partizan version, games are assigned to the edges and an edge is finally deleted when the assigned game reaches { | }. I’ll present some general reductions, some canonical values, and consider paths where the assigned games are 1 and -1.
