Excellent

Full of fun and skill

Sometimes a bit repetative if you play the same pe...

Well this has become a classic in its own right. When you pull the wrapper off you can 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...

“Connect 4 please mate”

Enhances brain power

Frustrating

“The virtual strategy game”, 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...

“Can you connect four”

published 07/03/2002

Very playable for the younger generations

A 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...

“Four Up”

published 03/04/2001

Great simple game for all ages

None

After noughts and crosses I suppose that someone had to come 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...

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST PLAYED KIDS AND ADULT GAMES TODAY. I WORK AT A KIDS CLUB AND THIS IS ONE OF THE ONLY GAMES THAT ALL THE KIDS WILL PLAY AND DIFFERENT AGES CAN EASILY PLAY EACH OTHER. THE IDEA IS TO GET FOUR OF YOU COLOURED COUNTERS IN A ROW HOWEVER YOU MUST BLOCK YOUR OPPONENT. THIS CAN...

QUICK TO SET UP AND QUICK TO PUT AWAY

ONLY 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...

“~it takes four!~”

great fun

none

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...

“Connect 4 If You Can”

published 26/02/2002

Keeps kids occupied for hours

Abit 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...

“Connect four - fun for all”

cheap, fun for all ages.

None

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...

“How to make courses more fun”

published 29/04/2001

Fun, simple rules

Still 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)...

“One, Two, Three....D'oh!”

Simple

Or is it?

A deceptively simple game that is amazingly difficult! And now I have started I’m finding it difficult to explain the ‘board’. It’s basically an upright board with vertical slots into which you drop coloured discs. The object of the game is to get four of your coloured discs in a row –...

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...

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...
