Welcome to Connect 4

The "Connect 4" Java Applet should load momentarily. You may need to install the Java plugin before the applet can be run on your browser. This should happen automatically, with your approval.

The object of Connect 4 is to drop checkers into the various columns so that you creat a line of four checkers - horizontally, vertically, or diagonally - before your opponent does. Select a column for your checkers by clicking on the button at the bottom of the column, or by typing the number of the column on your keyboard.

Your opponent is initially the computer - the difficulty level can be changed in the "Players" dialog under the "Options" menu.

This window must remain open for you to play Connect 4 - you may minimize this window, but close it, and the applet will dissapear.
