Connect 4 is a vertical checker game and is a distant relative to tic-tac-toe. Players alternate dropping their checkers down one of seven columns or 'chutes.' The object is to get four of your checkers in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

Although Connect Four is marketed as a game for kids, there is a surprising amount of depth to Connect Four that even adults can appreciate. It almost goes without saying there is no luck involved. If you're losing most of your games, you're being outplayed. If all of the columns are filled up but one, and you're forced to place your checker in the remaining column, resulting in a lost game, your skillful opponent probably planned it this way, many moves earlier.

Draws are certainly possible, although even between two experienced Connect 4 players they are actually quite rare.

Connect Four is a great game for kids. It forces them to think carefully through the consequences of what both players are attempting to do. As they become more experienced they begin to look further ahead than just the next turn or two.

  • Play Against Learning Opponents
