Are you now, or have you ever been, a kid? If the answer is yes, chances are good that you’ve played Connect Four. (If the answer is no: Are you Benjamin Button?) If you’re still into the game but not so into the plastic frame and primary colours, this very classy set will most certainly impress even your most refined opponent.
Some might argue the vertical yellow board and “go for it red, go for it black” discs are part of the charm, but this dark wood and aluminium combo does look pretty cool. High style like this doesn’t come cheap, however — this thing will set you back $US179. In fact, I’m kind of digging this gateway model on Etsy for $US24.99. Whatever your pleasure, I think one thing is certain: Connect Four is, and always will be, more fun than draughts. [Restoration Hardware; Etsy]
