Connect 4 is a classic game that is sure to be popular for years to come. It is a strategy game played in a non-traditional vertical style with players alternating turns hoping to connect 4 checkers either in a straight line, or diagonally. It is extremely easy to learn, and plays in under 5 minutes. With Connect 4 you can have a lot of fun in 30 minutes.
The only problem with the game that I have is it's cheap plastic construction. It isn't durable at all. I wish there was a sturdier alternative available. I would pay extra money for it. In any case, do not let the less than perfect durability factor prevent you from owning and enjoying Connect 4.
Some kids drew on the blackboard. Other kids just got together in groups and talked. And then there were kids like me that played Connect Four.
Connect Four is extremely habit-forming because you get totally engaged in the game-play. It takes skill, a little bit of luck, and a decent amount of humor to play. We would have Connect Four tournaments all the time in grade school, and they would get pretty competitive sometimes!
Fun: This game is one of the best out there. Once you catch on, which doesn't take long since the rules of the game are easy, it is great to play. If you like games that will make you think and strategize, games that force you to outwit your opponent, this is a good game to reach for.
Educational Value: It keeps the little ones from getting into things. That was always my experience with it. Why go getting myself into mischief when I can go head-to-head with someone two feet in front of me? Little ones will find this a fun counting game.
Durability: The only thing that could probably dampen the fun of the game is losing any of the Checkers to the game. Either that or someone steps on the plastic frame, cracking it or just plain breaking it. But this is not something that people should worry too much about. This game is very durable; it holds up well.
In short, this is a classic game that has stood the test of time. And there are many ways to play it, not just connecting four Checkers in a row. Many games come and go, but Connect Four is a treasure that will last forever.
What's particularly effective about the game is that the rules are so simple that she can concentrate on the content of the game.
My only complaint is that after hundreds of playings the plastic slider at the bottom has become a bit loose, and several complex games came to an abrupt finale when the checkers were released unintentionally under the weight.
I played this game for hours when I was a kid with my younger sister and brother and, with my father, we had family tournaments that would run over several weeks. For what it is worth, you can jazz this game up (just like chess) by adding a clock/timer so that people's cumulative moves are timed throughout the game. This helps some people from taking minutes to complete their turns if, for example, you set a limit that no player can take more than one cumulative minute than the other or else they lose.
