Hasbro Giant Connect 4
Advantages: Fun; A laugh
My dad brought this at the beginning of the summer and it's been used loads and is mad fun. I love Connect 4 and we've had the board game for years and this giant one is exactly the same only bigger.
To play Connect 4 you have to decide who is going to be red and who is going to be yellow. Then we toss a coin to see who goes first. You place the disc at the top of the board and drop it down to where you want it to end up. The aim is to get 4 in a row but your opponent will be trying to block you and make lines of 4 for themselves.
I like the sides of the board on this giant Connect 4 because that's where you keep the discs and it's a dead simple idea but very effective.
When you've finished the game (and hopefully won!!!!) you just pull the bar at the bottom and that releases all the discs onto the floor and then you stack them back up and are ready to play again.
Everyone loves playing this and we've had it in the garden and played it inside as well because even though it's big it's not a majorly bulky thing. You just have to reemember to wipe the feet of it before you bring it in because if you 've had it on the grass it will get the carpet dirty.
My little sister gets annoyed when we're playing this big Connect 4 game because it's taller than she is so she has to keep asking to be picked up so she can put her disc in. She's not allowed to play the small Connect 4 either because she puts the pieces in her mouth so she loses out all round with this game.
It's very expensive, my dad paid £110.00 for it and he had a proper good deal but if you wait til the winter it'll be loads cheaper so you should be able to get a bargain for next summer. The game is dead sturdy and isn't flimsy at all and stands up straight while you're playing, it was easy to put together in the first place and it still looks in as good as new condition even though it's been played loads and left out in the rain and everything.
Summary: Giant Connect 4 Is Even Better Than The Original
