We characterize the (κ, Λ, < μ)-distributive law in Boolean algebras in terms of cut and choose games $\scr{G}_{<\mu}^{\kappa}(\lambda)$ , when μ ≤ κ ≤ Λ and κ<κ = κ. This builds on previous work to yield game-theoretic characterizations of distributive laws for almost all triples of cardinals κ, Λ, μ with μ ≤ Λ, under GCH. In the case when μ ≤ κ ≤ Λ and κ<κ = κ, we show that it is necessary to consider whether the κ-stationarity of Pκ+Λ in the ground model is preserved by B. In this vein, we develop the theory of κ-club and κ-stationary subsets of Pκ+Λ. We also construct Boolean algebras in which Player I wins $\scr{G}_{\kappa}^{\kappa}(\kappa ^{+})$ but the (κ, ∞, κ)-d.1, holds, and, assuming GCH, construct Boolean algebras in which many games are undetermined
