The vertical four-in-a-row checkers game!
Connect Four is like vertical tic-tac-toe. Unlike tic-tac-toe, however (as the name suggests), you must get four checkers in a row. One player has red checkers; the other has black checkers. To play, alternate turns at dropping one of checkers down a slot at the top of the upright grid. The first player to get four checkers lined up in a row in any direction--horizontal, vertical, or diagonal--wins the game. --Alison GolderSee all Product description

The game is a great classic, easy enough that anyone can learn in minutes but difficult enough for somewhat complex strategies. Also if you don't pay careful attention someone can beat you by accident.
The only problem I have with the game is it's construction. When I was younger the one we had was made of much heavier plastic. The game also had a swing arm at the bottom that swung out to let the checkers out. This game has a plastic oval at the bottom, believe me it's a nice touch because it keeps the checkers in but the problem is that it's cheap thin plastic. The stand is also made of three pieces rather than one so it keeps falling apart, I'd consider gluing it together but then it wouldn't fit into the box.
This game is a great addition to your collection if you have childern, it doesn't have much potential as an adult game but that's not what it's meant for. If you can find one of the older versions at a garage sale or a thrift store though buy that one instead.
Feeling nostalgic & moderately sad. :(
To add insult to injury, the game that I did receive costs less in a different Amazon listing (http://www.amazon.com/Connect-4-Five-Ways-Play/dp/B003IT7AK8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1356126875&sr=8-4&keywords=connect+four).
I also noticed that the description for the game says the seller is "Time to SAVE" and fullfilled by Amazon but the actual seller is "Goodwin Goodies" as per my account:past purchases page.
The game I'm sure is fine. It's the incorrect listing and price that I am reviewing. Hopefully this review will save the next person from disappointment.
