Hasbro Giant Connect 4
Advantages: You wont lose it- perhaps not an advantage though.
Disadvantages: All of it.
You may be asking yourself, at this point, who in thier right mind would buy a giant Connect 4? Well, I'll tell you who: lots of people. Short sighted people and people with giant hands being just two examples. But, the real question here is, do you want a giant Connect 4? And the answer is, no, probably not.
Now Hasbro's Giant Connect 4 is by no means the first normally small game to be made larger for no apparent reason, like giant chess or giant foosball (some call it football, i think), but it may be the least necessary. I cannot even fathom the reason for this games existence- the giantness adds absolutely nothing to the equasion. If anything, it makes the whole affair more awkward and unwieldy.
The game is sold and packaged as a 'party' game, which is exactly where i played it. But, unlike its eccentric cousin, the giant Jenga!, which at least brings with it the threat of serious physical injury by those huge blocks falling on someone, perhaps the head, giant Connect 4 was deserted almost all night. Those flimsy Connect 4 coins couldn't even make a baby cry, not even if you throw them at it really hard, it just leads to an angry mother shouting at me. The frame was shabby looking too, which means the whole affair makes you feel like an idiot, and rightly as thats exactly what you look like when you play it. Just take a look at those people playing the game there in the picture, they definitely look like idiots. The game may even make you into an idiot, just look how the girl playing with the yellow coins is about to lose to a straight-up column- what an idiot!
The price of the game is really the icing on the fruit cake (a metephor i use on the assumption that, like me, you hate fruit cake. Of course you do, everyone does). Going for nearly £150 on eBay, this game is wildly overpriced. If its astounding flimsiness wasn't enough to render this price tag absurd, then its complete and utter dullness and stupid premise should be.
Summary: i want money back, and not those stupid gold and red coins.
