CONNECT 4 - SIMPLE BUT GENIUS!!

AdvantagesQUICK TO SET UP AND QUICK TO PUT AWAY

DisadvantagesONLY FOR TWO PLAYERS

"CONNECT 4 Sometimes the simplest of games give the most pleasure and after playing Connect 4 with my children today I thought that I would review it. THE GAME ITSELF The game is made up of red and yellow counters and a simple blue plastic grid. The game is for two players and each player chooses one of the colours. The object of the game is to then slot the counters in the grid (it houses 42 counters as a maximum) at the top (taking turns) and ..." Read review

Can you connect four

AdvantagesVery playable for the younger generations

DisadvantagesA little boring for the older generations

"This game has been around for years, and it is still as playable as ever. Kids love it, and I must admit, I will gladly have a go myself from time to time. My partner and I bought it for our two youngest, as having it as a child, I remebered how much I liked it, and we though they would too. Over the years it hasn't changed much. The only difference I have noticed, is there is now a plastic tray to catch the pieces, where as mine never had ..." Read review

Four in a Row Game

AdvantagesLots of fun, for adults and kids, lasts a long time

DisadvantagesNone

"The Connect Four game has been out since the middle of the 1970s. The game is played on a board that has two sides of plastic both with holes cut through and then stuck together around the outside. You stand this board up on a stand that comes with it, The board is open at the top so you can place coloured discs into it. The bottom has a closure fixed to it so that you can shut it when it play and then open it up to get out the discs once the game ..." Read review

Advantagesgreat fun

Disadvantagesnone

"== MB Games Connect Four== with the amount of rainy days that we have in this country I feel it is an absolute must to have a cupboard full of family games that we can all sit down and play when there is nothing to do. This is far more beneficial for everyone than watching the TV or playing the computer and it is something we all really enjoy doing (although its not very cool in this day and age!) The Connect Four game is one of those classics ..." Read review

A game full of skill and strategy

AdvantagesFull of fun and skill

DisadvantagesSometimes a bit repetative if you play the same person

"...smell the distinct wiff of connect four and then when you attach the pieces of plastic it forms an incredibly simple yet effective game. Connect four is a game of skill and strategy which teaches people the ideas of logic and helps with games lke chess draughts and solitaire. There are two different sets of pieces:yellow and red, they both have the same amount of pieces. You take turns in putting piecies down into a grid. The idea of the ..." Read review

Connect 4 If You Can

AdvantagesKeeps kids occupied for hours

DisadvantagesAbit noisy

"I bought Connect Four, for my Step-daughter a couple of years ago, and it cost me 4.99 from Woolworths. However, I have seen this game quite recently priced at 2.99 in Wilkinsons, which is a real bargain for so much fun. My Step-daughter aged 10 absolutely loves this game and so does my Boyfriend aged 39, so it is definitly suitable for allsorts of age groups. They can both sit there for hours continuasly playing game after game, in fits of ..." Read review

Four Up

AdvantagesGreat simple game for all ages

DisadvantagesNone

"...up with the idea of Connect Four and a good idea it is too. In both cases you have to line up the required number of symbols either, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. In noughts and crosses it is three symbols and the game is played on paper whilst in Connect Four it is four symbols or coloured disks and the game is played in a special frame. The upright standing frame has 6 columns into which will fit 7 of the provided disks on top of each ..." Read review

1, 2, 3... Damn

AdvantagesEasy to play, travel version available

DisadvantagesOnly for 2 players

"...another classic from MB Games. Connect 4 has been around for over 25 years and remains a firm family favourite. For 2 players, recommended ages of 7 years and above, the concept is simple. You have a blue plastic grid, consisting of 42 holes, laid out as seven columns of six. In addition to that, you have 42 counters, 21 are yellow, and the other 21 are red. The idea is that the players take it in turns to drop their counters into any of the ..." Read review

One, Two, Three....D'oh!

AdvantagesSimple

DisadvantagesOr is it?

"...vertically – hence the name, Connect 4. There are 42 coloured discs in two colours, one colour for each player. Now, in this wonderful, technologically advanced world we live in, you can play Connect 4 on your PC or online. Unless you are beating the pants off everyone you know, I would advise against this. The computer knows all the moves and is waiting in anticipation of your next slip up – it is not going to make a human error, or slap its forehead ..." Read review

How to make courses more fun

AdvantagesFun, simple rules

DisadvantagesStill luck needed

"Connect Four was my favourite game during my first two years at university. I used to play it a lot during courses (!). I'll explain here how it works, who can play it, if it's good, and finally some tactics. HOW DOES IT WORK? (If you know this, skip to the next paragraph) -------------------------- This game is played with two players. There is a 7*6 frame. Each player drops yellow or red (depending on the colour they've chosen at the beginning) ..." Read review

Connect 4 and you've won...

AdvantagesSimple yet addictive

DisadvantagesNot a game that adults would normally want to be seen playing

"What a deceptively simple game. Here are the rules, straight from the inside of my box: 1: Choose who plays first. The player starting the first game will play second in the next game. 2: Each player in turn drops one of his coloured counters down ANY of the slots in the top of the grid. 3: The play alternates until one of the players gets FOUR counters of his colour in a row. The four in a row can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. 4: ..." Read review

"Connect four, I am quite sure that everyone of us at some stage in life has played. I know Christmas day used to get quite fraught with Auntie Mabel 'hiding' the yellow pieces in her purse!!! She really believed, god love her, we were playing with real money! Anyway to those who have never heard of, or seen connect four, where have you been??? But seriously, Connect four comprises of two stands, into which is slotted the game board. The game board ..." Read review

Connect four - fun for all

Advantagescheap, fun for all ages.

DisadvantagesNone

"Connect four is such a traditional game, I can remember playing this game when I was in primary school and I still play it now at the age of 30 with my niece. I have seen many versions of this game throughout the years. The game of connect four that I own I have had since a child I believe it came form woolworths, my niece's game isn't as good of quality as my game I believe hers game from Argos, she also owns a miniature version of this. As my ..." Read review

With a bazooka at the ready

AdvantagesDevastatingly simple

DisadvantagesVery frustrating

"...good games, the idea of Connect Four is amazingly simple. You have an upright game board, which is a plastic frame which allows you to drop counters in to what resembles a chess board turned vertically, a grid which allows counters to be held in a line above any that drop into the bottom row. It's a game for two players and each has a set of round counters. One player has one colour and the other player has a set of a different colour. Each ..." Read review
