Connect Four

October 28th, 2003

I’m not the type of person who has a problem accepting change. Life cannot remain stagnant, otherwise there’s never room for improvement. However, I really really hate it when companies change the design of their board games. Don’t they realize that we grew up with a particular game and have a fondness for it? First they changed Candy Land. Then they changed Aggravation. And now, they’ve changed Connect Four. To some, it’s not a big deal. But to me, it is. It’s just wrong to change the color of the pieces. It’s a downright travesty! When I saw the new Connect Four at Target I couldn’t bear to buy it even though I love the game and Joe’s kids expressed interest in it. It’s just not right, and I couldn’t do it.

So when I came across the original version at Walmart, I snapped it right up. And I suggest you do the same before it’s gone forever. Run to Walmart right now!

    I’m all for changing things and trying out new designs/varities whatever as long as they keep the original version available. To out right replace it with something redesigned is silly.

    Oh my god! Why do people have to try and improve something that is already just fine as it is? I’ll never play Connect Four with a BLUE board and yellow checkers! Come on, it’s gotta be a yellow board and red and black checkers! Whatever happened to tradition?!?

    (Yeah, and I’m still bitter that they got rid of Jarts- we shouldn’t be penalized because some stupid kid threw them at somebody’s feet!)

    PS- great site, by the way! I’m adding it to my blogroll :)
