Connect 4

Recommended Posts

Is it a board game?

Me and my finer half have been debating this.

She thinks it is.

I think she is wrong.

Who is right?

Is it a board game though?

Monopoly and Cluedo are as is Escape from Colditz, but is Connect 4?

Is it on a board? No

Is it a board game, NO.

I completely agree with you.

It is a grid game, but the jury is out.

Can disabled people play it?

I assume so.

Why wouldn't they be able to?

Is that a relevant question as to whether it is a board game though?

Yes it is relevant.

It is a plastic frame.

Hence, it isn't a board game.

Any proof or evidence to back up it not being a board game, other than just your opinion?

In my opinion, Toys R us, and Smyths carry  more  weight in their category placing than you do, so you need to come up with something proper, or just shut the fuck up.

This is from Hasbo's website. They make Connect 4.

No mention of a board so I guess I assumed right. 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Challenge a friend to disc-dropping fun with the classic game of Connect 4! Drop your red or yellow discs in the grid and be the first to get 4 in a row to win. If your opponent is getting too close to 4 in a row, block them with your own disc! Whoever wins can pull out the slider bar to release all the discs and start the fun all over again!

Includes grid, 2 legs, slider bar, 21 red discs, 21 yellow discs and instructions

Ages 6 and up.

For 2 players.

Adult assembly required.

Connect 4 and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

WARNING: Product must be assembled by an adult. Keep small parts necessary for assembly out of children’s reach.

Do the makers of Monopoly, Cluedo, snakes and ladders etc,etc,etc, specify a board?

Also why after expressing your opinion, do you find the need to go on a website for support?

Any half clever person would know the facts beforehand.

If I check the facts at the makers website then it just clarifies things.

As for your question about Monopoly I went to the trouble to get the facts. 

Here is how Hasbro describe their game...

Monopoly is a board game where players roll two six-sided dice to move around the game-board buying and trading properties, and develop them with houses and hotels. Players collect rent from their opponents, with the goal being to drive them into bankruptcy. Money can also be gained or lost through Chance and Community Chest cards, and tax squares; players can end up in jail, which they cannot move from until they have met one of several conditions. The game has numerous house rules and hundreds of different editions exist, in addition to many spin-offs and related media; Monopoly has become a part of international popular culture, having been locally licensed in more than 103 countries and printed in more than thirty-seven languages.

So, it would appear Monopoly is indeed a board game and Connect 4 is not.
