Title: Graph Games and Logic Design .

Abstract. Graph games are widely used recreationally and for computational purposes. We analyze some main varieties of graph games and show how they suggest  design of matching modal logics with interesting properties. Some recent results, many obtained by colleagues and students in China and Stanford,  will be presented to show the interest of this particular concrete way of  connecting logic and games. But there will also be open problems.
