4 gewinnt

Schnipp den Chip


A new version of Connect 4, that offers surprisingly new and surprisingly challenging ideas. You do not place checkers or put them into slots to form a row of 4! From two game plateaus in the form of clear plates with 4x4 dents and four columns you construct a game board on two levels. Each player has chips in his color and a catapult. As a basic move you snip a chip with your catapult and try to hit one of the levels and make up a row of four chips of the same color. When two chips end up in the same dent, the one on top is the one that counts. For this basic mechanism the rules list three varieties to play. 1) Best Frantic Launch: You make up a row of four chips as usual, if you are first to do so you win, regardless in which level the row is situated. 2) Championship Frantic Launch: For a complete row of four you score points; 2 points for a row on the top level and 1 point for a row in the bottom level. You play until one player has 5 points. 3) Advanced Power Launch: You score as in variant 2), but you can use your power chips. These can either give you an additional move, or remove all chips from adjacent dents or rows or from only one adjacent dent. If a power chip ends up outside a dent, the power chip is not active, and does not become active if it should fall into a dent later. For all games versions for team play are listed.

This snipping version turns the tactical game into a game of dexterity, which needs a good eye, dexterity and a nice sense for distances to snip the discs into the spot you intend it to land. A very nice addition to the family of Connect 4! games.
