Connect 4

Connect 4 game box. Connect 4 is a two player game where the objective is to get four of your colored checkers in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally in the grid used as the "game board."  Each player takes turns putting one of their colored checkers in the 6 x 7 grid.  Similarly to tic-tac-toe, players want to get four of their colored checkers in a row, while also preventing their opponent from getting four of their colored checkers in a row.  The first player to put four of their checkers in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally wins.
