Connect 4 Launchers

A new take on the classic Connect 4

  • 21 Red Counters
  • 21 Yellow Counters
  • 4 Pillar Pieces
  • 2 Trays
  • 1 Red and 1 Yellow Counter Launcher

Setting this game up was very quick much to the delight of the mini toyologists. It is very sturdy and brightly designed.

It takes a little while to get used to learning how to launch the counters and ironically Savana (age 4) did this quicker than her sister Bailey (age 7).

Once you master the art of launching at two different levels - you can start to learn about the different game suggestions on offer:-

a) Basic Frantic Launch - the winner is the first to get 4-in-a-row
b) Championship Frantic Launch - first to score 5 wins
c) Advanced Power Launch - first to score at least 3 points

and a great added feature TEAM PLAY

Connect 4 Launchers is certainly a game for all ages - the box does say 5+ but Savana loved it. It certainly caters for both children and adults with great adaptions and we will be taking it along to our Center Parcs holiday in a couple of weeks time to test it out with the rest of the family.

So what do we score this game?

Bailey 4
Savana 4
Mum 4
Dad 4

WOW think that is unanimous and ironically Hasbro the Hickmott Family give Connect 4 Launchers a score of 4
