Connect Four

The classic game built in Meccano for the ‘Games’ Secretary’s Challenge

This simple but popular game was first sold by Milton Bradley in 1974. Two players take turns inserting their coloured discs into the grid, aiming to be the first to form a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line of four of their own discs.

My Meccano version of the game was built for the ‘Games’ Secretary’s Challenge at the South East London Meccano Club.

A win for the red player!

The use of red and yellow ½” pulleys for the player discs does not allow the grid cells to be square, but the bottom of the grid can swing out to release the discs, just like it does in the original game.
