This game is centuries old, Captain James Cook used to play it with his fellow officers on his long voyages, and so it has also been called "Captain's Mistress". A version called Connect Four" was first published in 1974.
Connect Four is a two-player game in which the players first choose a color and then take turns dropping one colored disc from the top into a seven-column, six-row 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 discs.
Our exclusive 'Ocean' version includes a laser cut board from 3 mm mdf and 42 beautiful 6 mm clear perspex discs, laser-engraved with a seahorse and a pansy shell - both local icons from the Garden Route. The board measures 28.5 cm x 300 cm and each disc is 37 mm in diameter. The discs come packaged in a little chiffon drawstring bag.
