Advantages: A simple yet strategic game.
Connect 4 is a classic game for players aged six and up according to the box. However, this is another game that I've had younger children happily play with from around four years of age.
Two players compete against each other. One player has the yellow set of counters and the other has the red counters.
Players take it in turn to drop a counter of their chosen colour, into the slot from the top of the provided blue frame. The frame is very easy to put together into the separate stand. The plastic is thick. Just keep away those counters from the mouths of young children.
The first counter clatters down to land, where you have chosen, somewhere on the bottom row of the frame. After this you may choose to position your counter to the side or on top of a counter that's all ready in place.
The winner will achieve the successful placement of their four counters (or more) all in an uninterrupted row even the opposition has been trying to block them.
The rules allow for the successful player to have four counters, of their own colour, in a line either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
Players must think ahead as to where the best placement of their counter will be in order to win. The game set-up, play and conclusion are simple, but the people who win over and over again are the best strategists.
Apart from the obvious educational value in developing strategy this is good fun. The game length is often a few minutes, if that, but the fun is often continued over and over again for hours.
Once a game is completed just open the mechanism at the bottom of the frame, and out comes all the counters, to be gathered back up. Everything is sturdy and decently made.
Often the price is much cheaper than many other classic board games. There's no need to pay any more than ten pounds for this. In fact, that is probably too much. I bought mine for about six pounds.
I find the game isn't always picked out by children from my collection of toys all that often but when they discover Connect 4 they are engaged in play for hours.
Why not connect with the children with this game of Connect 4?
Summary: Classic game available for those on a low budget.
