Description

Connect Four is a two-player connection game that was designed by Howard Wexler and Ned Strongin, and was first sold under this name by Milton Bradley in 1974.

Rules

Connect 4 is played on a vertically placed grid of 7x6, where colored disks are dropped from the top of the grid. Players alternate dropping discs, which fall to the bottom of the column in which they are dropped. The first player to create a row of 4 disks in their color wins.
