Chess, Connect Four, Go, Checkers. There is some delightful charm in these games of “perfect information”. All the game pieces, possible actions, next moves are completely open for your opponent’s observation. Nothing is hidden, nothing is concealed. Today, I am going to share about this “Bingo - Connect Four” from Funyards Australia .
Why I love ❤️ this game:
(1) Classic Two-Player Game With Clever Compact Design
Connect Four is a two-player strategy game, where each player takes turn to drop a ball into one of the columns of a vertical board. The aim is to form a line of four balls of the same colour (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), whilst trying to “block” your opponent from making a solid 4-in-a-row. I have seen many versions of Connect Four in different sizes, materials, designs, and variations. This set from Funyards Australia is probably the most compact, sturdy, and travel-friendly version I have ever seen. Simply remove the two round wooden button screws / plugs from both sides of the base, set the game-board vertically in the middle of the base, and lock it up using the same wooden screws. Each player can sit face-to-face to each other when playing this game, and I simply love the very handy balls compartment/ tray for each player. The set comes with 49 timber balls - 25 red and 24 green balls. The vertical board is in the classic grid of six-row and seven-column. If you need a reminder of the rules, the set also thoughtfully includes a small instruction sheet for the game.
(2) Travel-Friendly Game With Removable Vertical Board
The BEST FEATURE that I love most: the vertical frame and the balls can all be stored and folded away neatly in a small, travel-easy size of 15.50×19.50×2.80cm. The base and the removable board are each marked with a red spot (the two red dots should be positioned right beside each other when the board is folded down). Insert the two screws, and now the game is good to go!
(3) Solid Rubber Wood Material & Awesome Quality
I love the solid rubber wood material - from the base, board, screws, to the timber balls. This set is built for long-lasting play and will definitely stand the test of time. I love how precise and smooth the craftsmanship is, and how everything come and fit together so beautifully!
