Hasbro Connect 4
Advantages: Easy to play, fun, affordable.
Disadvantages: It's only a two player game, quite simplistic.
At Christmas we always get the old board games out and invest in a few new ones. This year, my boyfriend and I decided to buy Hasbro Connect 4. I used to play this game when I was little and I thought it would be a great game to play over the festive period.
I bought this in the discount store B&M for around £5.00. You will pay around £8.99 if you buy it on-line, but I think it's worth the price tag because this is a game that you'll play over and over again.
Connect is very simple to set up, so children should be able to play this independently. That said, this set does contain small pieces and it isn't suitable for anybody under the age of six. Within the Connect 4 box you get a plastic board that stands up when two plastic legs are attached to it. The game also comes with red and yellow disks, that you slot into the plastic board during the game.
I think that the best thing about Connect 4 is that both young and old people can enjoy it. I have played this with my boyfriend's niece (who is six), my OH (who is 30) and my granddad (who is in his 70s)! It's a great game to play during the festivities, at a family get together, or just when you're bored!
The only slight disadvantage is that it's only a two player game. However each round of Connect 4 only lasts between ten and fifteen minutes so it's easy to take turns and make sure that everybody get's a go.
The rules are really simple - the first person to connect four coloured disks on the plastic board wins. You can connect the disks vertically, horizontally or diagonally; and you have to work tactically to make sure you block your opponent from connecting 4 disks before you do.
Once you've finished the game you release the disks at the bottom of the board and either pack them away or play again.
I think this game is a classic - every home should own Connect 4.
Summary: 4 stars for Connect 4!
