'Game History' menu item for Minichess in Zillions-of-Games says: 'The
recent play has suggested that the game is a draw with the best play.' 

Does anybody has more information on this? What is the best play in
Gardner minichess?

This is included in the small chess variants among the Zillions standard games (that are freeware and comes with the download). /Mats

This chess variant is usually called 'Gardner minichess', since it was Martin Gardner, who first invented it in 1969.
