Connect Four Information

Connect Four is a two-player game in which the players first choose a color and then take turns dropping their colored discs — known as "checkers" in the United States — from the top into a seven-column, six-row vertically-suspended grid. The pieces fall straight down, occupying the next available space within the column. The object of the game is to connect four of one's own discs of the same color next to each other vertically, horizontally, or diagonally before one's opponent can do so. There are many variations on the board size, the most commonly used being 7×6, followed by 8×7, 9×7, and 10×7.

The game was sold under the famous Connect Four trademark by Milton Bradley in February 1974.

The game was solved mathematically by James D. Allen , and independently by Victor Allis . With perfect play, the first player can force a win by starting in the middle column. By starting in the two adjacent columns, the first player allows the second player to reach a draw; by starting with the four outer columns, the first player allows the second player to force a win.
