Instead of playing on paper like checkers, children will drop their cards onto the board. Children will have a larger space to observe and the colorful board will stimulate their interest.
Connect 4 is not just a board game version of the game of checkers, it can also be played in many different ways. Here are the three most common ways to play Connect 4:
Option 1: is the most basic way and is similar to playing checkers, players take turns dropping their cards on the board, and whoever gets 4 in a row first (vertical, horizontal, diagonal) wins.
Method 2: Both players will simultaneously drop their cards into the board but can only use 1 hand.
Method 3: This is a way to play expanded, high difficulty levels. On your turn, you have the choice of dropping 1 card onto the board or drawing 1 card from the bottom of the board and the goal is to get 4 cards in line first.
