Who would love this: Collectors of wooden / classic games 

We love fresh ideas and creative games. But sometimes, we just want to stick to the classic - the straightforward, easy-to-learn games that never go out of style. “Connect Four” falls within this category. It’s a game that our family always enjoys as a “filler”. Today, I’m going to share about another “Connect Four” set from Funyards Australia

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Classic 2-Player Strategy Game 

Connect Four is a two-player strategy game- each player takes turn to drop a ball/ disc into one of the columns of a vertical board. The aim is to form a line of 4 discs of the same colour (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), whilst trying to “block” your opponent from making a solid 4-in-a-row. It’s a game of “perfect information” - all games pieces and actions are open for clear view. Nothing is hidden, nothing is concealed. Funyards Australia has a few versions of “Connect Four” range of top quality (I previously reviewed one which includes 49 red/green timber balls). This set that I am reviewing today has similar design - with button screws and removable 6x7 game board that can be flat-packed or set-up vertically. It has a a slightly larger game board and includes 42 discs in two different natural wooden shades (21 discs for each colour). I love the chunky discs, smart convertible game board, and the handy discs compartment/ tray for each player. If you need a quick reminder of the rules, the set also thoughtfully includes a small instruction sheet for the game. 

(2) Convertible Design - From Flat-Pack To Vertical Frame 

I absolutely LOVE how the vertical frame and the discs can all be stored and folded away neatly in a small, travel-easy size. 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/ lock the screws at the two sides of the base, and now the game is good to go! 

(3) Solid Rubber Wood Material - Sturdy & Long-Lasting 

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 sturdy and smooth the craftsmanship is, and I’m loving the aesthetic beauty of this wooden craft!
