Good version of a classic game...
on 15 January 2008
Connect 4 is a classic game. It's essentially a more complex version of Noughts and Crosses, but with gravity dropped (!) in. You have to drop your pieces down the slots in turns, and create a line of four in a row. At first, it sounds simple, but there are skills - creating traps and forcing your opponent into them. It is a game I have played literally thousands of times and it never gets tired.
The travel edition is perfectly good. Clearly everything's smaller (it's about six or seven inches high when set up), the pieces are a bit more fiddly, and the click they make when you drop them in isn't as satisfying. But all in all, you can't argue with this game or this edition.
