Connect Four is also a great notebook paper game for those too jaded or smart to keep playing tic-tac-toe or dots. The setup's pretty easy: draw a grid approximately with nine columns and six or so rows. In fact, without a board in front of me, I can't give you any exact dimensions. Generally you want more than seven columns and at least five rows. I usually go with 10x10. Milton Bradley's game (call it "regulation size") is six rows tall and seven columns wide.
But dimensions don't matter, all that matters is having fun and a mutual concept of gravity (usually, the edge nearest the bottom of the page).
And alfimp, do be careful with "wrong
". Yes, I'd play with an actual board -- in fact, I'd love to build one -- but if I remember anything from my engineering
classes, playing board games during lectures is very frowned upon
. And outside of Jenga
and that bottle caps
game, Connect-4's about the noisiest (and for that matter, distractingly brightly coloured) game two could play.
