I've always been a last minute Christmas shopper and it has usually worked out. This year I had a request to get a Connect Four game, but I couldn't find it in stock anywhere. So I decided to make my own version of it.
After working like one of Santa's Elfs for a few hours (minus the green tights) I had beautiful Connect Four style game.
You will need:
~ 8 1/2" x 11" Sheet of 1/8" thick acrylic x2 - These are for the front and back panels - any color
~ 6" x 11" Sheet of 1/8" thick acrylic x1 - This is for one set of checkers - any color (but not the same color as the front and back)
~ 6" x 11" Sheet of 1/8" thick acrylic x1 - This is for the other set of checkers - any color (but not the same color as the first set of checkers)
~ 7" x 11" Sheet of 1/4" thick acrylic x1 - These are for the removable side supports - any color you have is ok
Cut out all of the parts.
Lay the front or back piece on a flat surface. (front and back are exactly the same)
Press fit the eight (8) spacers (the long thin parts) into the piece that is laying flat. Note: Spacers are not symmetrical, up and down are not the same - don't force the parts.
Set-Up - Game play:
Each player takes a turn placing one checker into the board. The first player that gets four checkers in a row either horizontal, vertical or diagonal wins. The game board is reset, by pulling the checker retainers out so that the checkers fall out of the game board.
As requested, a new file has been added with a faster to use, one piece checker stopper - dropper.
