Connect Four Game

Championship Connect Four (4) Game for Mac and Windows is a vertical checker game download. Players alternate dropping their checkers down one of seven columns or 'chutes.' The object in the connect four game is to get four of your checkers in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

Although the Connect Four Game is marketed for kids, there is a surprising amount of depth to Connect Four that even adults can appreciate. It almost goes without saying there is no luck involved in Connect Four. If you're losing most of your games, you're being outplayed. If all of the columns are filled up but one, and you're forced to place your checker in the remaining column, resulting in a lost game, your skillful opponent probably planned it this way, many moves earlier.

Draws are certainly possible, although even between two experienced Connect 4 players they are actually quite rare.

Connect Four is a great game to download for kids. It forces them to think carefully through the consequences of what both players are attempting to do. As they become more experienced, connect 4 players begin to look further ahead than just the next turn or two.

In 1987, both Victor Allis and James Dow Allen almost simultaneously (and separately) solved the game of Connect Four. On the standard seven column six row board, using a computer they both discovered the game is won by the first player.  A computer may be able to play perfectly, but we humans cannot - and this is what makes Championship Connect 4 fun! Another popular variation of connect four is The Captain's Mistress.
