Great game to play with KIDS. I have to rate it higher based on that fact. ANYONE can play. And if any KID proposed a game of Connect Four, I'd play it. :-)

This game is mostly undervalued. It is really strategical. You have to force your opponent to take the row you wnat him to take. You have to creat double-traps to win the game.

Okay this is one of THE classics!!! I just love this game... all you have to do is get 4 in a row (any direction) and you say "connect 4!!!" This game for me is a timeless classic that is so much fun!!!

A thinkers game, but more one dimensional than chess. I still like playing it from time to time, partily for old time's sake, partially to challenge my brain.

Someone told me it has been solved. If so I don't care. I have played this game to death over the past 25 years. I once was playing my friend Mike... it took him 23 games to beat me... he wouldn't quit until he won. Maybe I just let him so the madness would stop.

One of my favorite childhood games. Found out as an adult that it is possible to win every single time if you go first.

Funny...I used to ask people if they wanted me to go first or if they wanted to go last.

My kids, especially my son. enjoy it quite a bit and it's one that is requested over the years. It teaches them to plan ahead and there's a lot to consider with each move. One of those games that is unfairly bashed IMO.

awesome game, love it--children can win, legitimately, adults can control the tempo (stringing it out, avoiding a crushing win, or playing quite hard, trying to end the game asap). Playing quickly means there is always activity and games can be relatively short, which means lots of games in 15 minutes. A real dream, esp when compared to candyland.

only requirement: have to know how to count to four, which is a limitation for the 3 yr old set.

Connect 4 is fast and has a decent amount of strategy involved in it. Good games will often take up 95% or so of the grid.

A better game than its reputation makes it sound. Plenty of room for thought and strategy, unless you're a computer who has already solved it.

Really, as far as the inevitable childhood games all American children get exposed to, this is near the top of the list.

this is an improved tic-tac-toe game, one which can be won using triangles. Anyway, it's fun and easy, easy to loose track of all the combinations so there's always that feeling of wanting to play just one more.

Rated as a kids game. Easy to understand rules. Has decision making, thinking ahead. Easy setup and quick play. It's a game where a little kid can easily explain the rules to another little kid and have fun playing with them.

There's no luck though, which is kind of a downside. An older kid will generally have an advantage over a younger one, and the younger one won't be able to win very often.

But I enjoy playing this with my kids.

Tic-tac-toe, with bigger board. And gravity matters. Good game, but usually ends in a tie if the players are of similar skill level.

An elegant little game, particularly good for playing with kids. Get the nice wooden version that usuaully retails under the name "Captain's Mistress". Legend has it that Captain Cook played it so often on his voyages that it was joked that the "captain was in his cabin with his mistress".
