Ultimate Connect Four – Player’s Guide

Play the Ultimate Connect Four – a fully customizable Connect Four game based on the original version. Ultimate Connect Four is a one- or two-player connection board game, in which the players choose a color and then take turns dropping colored tokens into a seven-by-six vertically suspended grid. The pieces fall straight down, occupying the lowest available space within the column. The objective of the game is to be the first to form a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line of four of one’s own tokens.

Game Customization

The game is customizable with the following options:

  • Choose between the Classic Mode (a 7×6 grid) and the Customized Mode (up to 9×8 grid)
  • Customize game settings including columns and rows of the grid, and the number of consecutive tokens to win (from 4 to 6)
  • Choose between One Player (against computer AI) and Two Players
  • Choose from one of the six designs of tokens with different shapes and colors combination

How to Play the Game

Assuming the tokens chosen are yellow vs. red, the first player starting Connect Four by dropping a yellow token into the center column of an empty game board. The two players then alternate turns dropping one of their tokens at a time into an unfilled column, until the second player, with red tokens, achieves a diagonal four in a row, and wins the game. If the board fills up before either player achieves four in a row, then the game is a draw.

Time limit: the players have up to three minutes to finish each game.
