My two oldest children, ages 7 & 8, played this game last year in their after school program. Santa brought it this year for Christmas....and what fun!! They love to play, and it really challenges them to develop strategic thinking skills. Win or lose, they love to play....best yet, just about every game is quick! So it is not unheard of to play ten games in one sitting. Great fun...and cheap!!!

We have enjoyed playing Connect Four Fun on the Run, but it's flimsy construction. The collection trays pop off repeatedly. In addition, the columns that store the checkers have lids that snap shut presumably to keep the checkers in place, but they continually pop off as well leaving checkers scattered in the box. The checkers are small, and are easy to lose. Hasbro doesn't offer replacements for the checkers, so you really have to be careful when playing. On the other hand, the price is so reasonable, it's entertaining, and I think instead of buying a duplicate I would buy the travel folio version with zip-up pouch.

Overall, I recommend this toy, but strongly suggest the game be stored in a plastic bag, as it doesn't hold up well to the bumps and bruises of travel with the trays, and lids popping off, and the checkers rolling all over the box.

Look, it's not super sturdy - it's plastic and those pieces are easy to lose. On the other hand, it's a tiny connect 4 game that works perfectly. The game comes with storage for the pieces built in, so you don't need a case or anything to carry it around. My son loves to bring it on planes and trips.

Kids loved this game, but it is not really made for traveling. The pieces fall out of the tray easily. My kids got frustrated at times having to pick up the pieces that would fall out while it was closed up being stored.

My 6 year old loves Connect-4 so I wanted to find something we could play while travelling (even on the plane). I was a leery after reading some of the reviews about how it might be flimsy. Perhaps they've improved the design, but I didn't have any problems with it. I do second another permissions recommendation to place the whole game into a quart or gallon size zip lock bag. The little checkers are small given the travel sized nature of this. The 2 "side tubes" held the checkers well and the flip top snapped on securely. We didn't have any issue with the bottom slider (that either holds the checkers in place or allows them to fall through). For the price, a great travel version.

The model that was sent was not as pictured. A small unit with a tray where pieces can be covered when the grid is horizontal was what I expected. The model I got is more bulky with no internal storage for pieces.

We bought this for a trip but have been using it at home almost as much as while traveling. The size is pretty great - doesn't take up too much room. A lot of games these days are quite large and really don't need to be - the size of this is similar to a fiction novel, but with the rounded base to catch the chips when you release them after play to re-load the game. It's not so small to make it hard to use, has tubes at each side to hold the chips during play and while not in use so none get lost, overall pretty convenient!

I'd suggest buying this size even if it's just for around the house. It's small enough to keep just about anywhere so you don't have to end up hiding it in a back closet because it's so big.

Summary: Great size for a great game, both while traveling and at home.

The small size is the whole point, I realize, but we tend not to use this, mostly because the size is not very appealing.
