Connect Four was originally released in 1974 by Milton Bradley and continues to be a popular two-player, “four-in-a-row” checkers game for kids and adults.
An upscale version of the game is now available from home furnishings retailer, Restoration Hardware. Four Up swaps out Connect Four’s plastic vertical game board and brightly coloured checkers for a wooden board with a vintage vibe and aluminum game pieces in silver and matte black.
Four Up checks in at $179 USD and roughly twice the size of the current version of Connect Four sold by Hasbro.
