This is a game that loosely combines “Connect 4” and scrabble. It is easy and quick to play but is quite mind stimulating.

Start by creating a 7 square by 6 square grid similar to the amount of spaces in a “Connect 4” game.

Now print or type large letters on paper or cardboard.
Each player will get 21 letters. It is up to you to determine which letters to use. I suggest eliminating rarely used letters like q,z,x,w,b etc. Each person should have multiples of some of the vowels.

The object of the game is to be the first player to make a four letter word by placing the letters in a similar fashion as in the game, “Connect 4”.

For “Connect 4” directions come back because I will be posting those directions soon.

Also please leave any questions or ideas in the comment section
