Advantages: Easy to learn
Disadvantages: Lmited in appeal
This is a very simple game to learn the rules for and a simple one to play as well.
It is a two player game and is suitable for anyone age six and over in my opinion. The game itself is easy to assemble, the main body of the game is a plastic square frame with 36 slots in it that make up seven columns and six rows, at the top there is an open section through which you can drop the circular discs. At the bottom there is a plastic flap to stop the discs falling straight through, all of this is ready assembled, all you have to do is clip the two plastic end on that suspend the main grid off the floor acting as the two supports of a bridge.
Each player has either a set of blue or red discs and players take it in turn to drop a disc into one of the columns to occupy a square. The objective being to be the first player to have four of your discs in a straight line, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. This is a strategy game as sometimes you have to adopt spoiling tactics to stop your oppenent rather than focusing solely on your own colours.
Players should alternate whose turn it is to go first and when we play it is usually best of five with a coin toss to decide who goes first if a fifth decider is needed.
This is a very simple game with few rules and it is fun for all ages. Once someone has won or all of the squares have been filled and the game is drawn then the flap at the bottom can be released and all of the discs will fall out to be divided up.
The only real downside to this game is there is no real variation and good players will cancel each other out most of the time.
Summary: Good strategy game.
