What makes up the classic family board game Connect 4?

It consists of a vertical board holder which has 7 slots on each side of the metal bars inside for checkers (or whatever round object is used) to drop down into. There are 100 checkers altogether: 20 red and 20 blue ones for two players, and four yellow ones mixed in with them to start out the game.

The classic board game consists of 21 disks that stack up right above the slots where players place their red and blue checkers after dropping them down from the top of the board. The checkers are dropped into the holes on top of where the disks stack up, and it is played vertically. There will be one checker that cannot fit in any hole (which is called a “red checker” for players who are playing as red checkers), which mixes up the game even more.

Whoever succeeds first wins the game!
