minimald6: All rules variants

Ever since I released minimald6, there was (for my tastes) a huge burst of activity, and authors and players started writing games for it. This makes me really happy — gaming is important for happiness! This little post here collects all the known rules variants of minimald6. Hopefully, you’ll find something that tickles your fancy.
