Recently, I began searching for games that can be played on a chess/checker board when I came across Complica. Technically, this is played one row less than half a checker board(4x7), but it is playable.
Anyway, the game is essentially like Connect Four, but there can be no draws. You play in four columns of 7 spaces. If a column fills up a piece played in that row slides everything down and kicks the bottom piece out. The goal is the same as Connect Four, get four in a row in any direction. In the case that sliding one of the columns results in four in a row for both players, the game continues. However, if one player has two rows of four and the other only one, the player with two rows wins.
While this is a short review the game is relatively straight forward. This is a game that must be tried for an fan of Connect Four or short abstracts in general. This is a great game that can be played in ten minutes or less for players of any age.
