Connect 4 x 4 is the only checkers four-in-a-row, four-player game--making it perfect for family game nights. With the new double-sided grid, you can score on both the front and back side of the game.
Game play is simple--pick a line, drop a checker in on each turn, and hope that your opponents don't foil your strategy before you get four checkers in a row! The game has also added "blockers," which can be used to block your opponents on both sides of the grid in one turn. However, make sure to save your blockers for when you really need them--you only get two and they are valuable!
When you're finished playing Connect 4 x 4, a convenient locking top slide keeps the pieces on the grid so you never have to worry about lost checkers.
Challenging Remake of a Timeless Favorite
If you grew up playing Connect 4, you'll quickly realize that Connect 4 x 4 is like having both an old favorite and a new game all in one. You can still play the game with two players, but now also have the option of playing with four. The double-sided grid adds a welcome challenge and complexity for long-time Connect 4 players. A word of warning for younger players: the added complexity may be a bit challenging to understand at first, but once they do, they'll definitely be hooked.
What's in the Box
Double-sided grid, 68 checkers (17 of each color), and eight blockers (two of each color).
The double-sided grid adds more opportunity to score, or be scored against!

And it's prettier - having four colors instead of two. Colored rings, even.
But that's just part of what makes this game so worthy of our collective consideration. The other part is the channels that accommodate the ex-checker rings. They're double-wide, double-sided. Which means that two rings fit where only one ring used to. And you win regardless of whether your ring is in the front or back of a channel - as long as there are four-in-a-row of your color.
There are also two "blocker" pieces for each color. Double-wide themselves, they fit into both sides of a channel. The blockers are powerful pieces, which is why you only have two of them, which is why you have to conserve them, which is what makes the game all the more inviting for people who like to ponder.
The strategic implications of all this are profound and subtle. Profound enough to make you have to rethink pretty-much everything you know about how to win Connect Four, subtle enough to make the game challenging enough to attract an adult audience, and perhaps too challenging for younger children. But, like Connect Four, the mechanics of dropping checkers into different columns, of being able to empty the entire board by moving the retaining wall on the bottom are still very much present, and at least fascinating enough to keep the toy-value of the game as playworthy as the game itself.Read more ›
My only misgiving about this game is that in an unbalanced play group, a poor player will give a massive advantage to the player following him. But even with this setback, it's a surprisingly intense experience that I would highly recommend. If the idea of a thinking man's Connect Four appeals to you, this is a dream come true.
Adding an extra layer keeps everyone on their toes weighing the possibilities. Its pretty easy to see the game pieces on both sides from a single sitting postion. Having double width blockers, in limited quantity (2 only) was also a stroke of genius. I disagree a bit with one review that following a weaker player provides a big advantage. The nature of the game, if you are playing w/ 3 or 4 players, is other players will chime in and alert you to possible mistakes that will allow someone to win. This is specifically allowed in the written rules, so it makes for a social game that almost all ages can play. The politicking comment was spot on. You may encourage a player to use their blocker to prevent somone from winning. They in turn might say, I'm using my single to block him here, YOU use YOUR blocker to block them there. Once in a while a player may have to decide who he is going to let win, as he has to decide which other player he is going to block, but that situation wasn't the norm. Usually a player can block the next player who then blocks the following player.Read more ›
