Connect 4 Inspiration and Gift Ideas

When someone says ‘Connect 4’, what comes to mind?

Perhaps a small, sensible tabletop game to spark a little competition with family after your Christmas dinner?

What about an extremely giant 4 x 4 metre game constructed in a field where basketballs become counters and you shoot full size basketball hoops in fast-paced competition to win ‘4 in a row’?

No…? Well that’s exactly what How Ridiculous have created!…

‘Epic Giant Basketball Connect 4’

These guys have created a 10ft tall Connect 4 game with 7 regulation size basketball hoops as targets. Using full size basketballs in two colour-ways as counters for two teams, Hshoot the hoops with the aim to get four in a row as quickly as possible without being blocked by the other team.

See how they’ve built it here;

Golf Connect 4

What about a Golf Connect 4 with a large ‘mini golf’ obstacle ramp built onto a golf course with 7 holes right at the top, with each hole-in-1 dropping into a giant connect 4 frame below?

How Ridiculous have brought this to life. Constructing a huge wooden ramp covered with turf, two teams aim to putt the 7 holes at the back to win four in a row. The balls drop into a frame at the bottom, and it’s a race against your opponent to connect your four before they create a block.
