Connect 4x4 £8.99 @ Amazon
I love playing games with the kids. When my step kids were young, one of their favourites was Connect 4. Actually, it still is. Now my son is starting to enjoy playing it too. This game is an update on the classic. You get two grids, and a Connect 4 can happen on either side of the grid. Amazon has this game on offer for less than half price delivered - £8.99 (RRP £19.99).
So, if you’ve never played this game before, here’s how it works. You drop coloured counters into the frame, with the aim of getting four of your colour in a row – either across a row, down a column or diagonally. That’s in the normal version of the game. With this one, you get an extra grid. The lines can also weave back and forth over both front and rear grids, for, as the manufacturer says “a brain-tickling, competitive 3D puzzle”. You can also play this version with two to four players. The game is recommended for ages eight and up.
