Abstract
We present a game semantics for Linear Logic, in which formulas denote games and
proofs denote winning strategies. We show that our semantics yields a categorical model of
Linear Logic and prove full completeness for Multiplicative Linear Logic with the MIX rule:
every winning strategy is the denotation of a unique cut­free proof net. A key role is played
by the notion of history­free strategy; strong connections are made between history­free
strategies and the Geometry of Interaction. Our semantics incorporates a natural notion of
polarity, leading to a refined treatment of the additives. We make comparisons with related
work by Joyal, Blass et al.
