Match4 traces its lineage to a traditional game
called Captain's Mistress, also known as
Four Up, Plot Four, Find Four, Fourplay,
Four in a Row or Four in a Line and
sold in a version since 1974 by
Milton Bradley-Hasbro as
A timeless entertainment, this classic fun family
game is a perennial favorite. It has stood the test
of time and continues to be one of the best.
Captain’s Mistress is like a greatly enhanced
game of Tic Tac Toe - with a powerful twist.
2 players take turns dropping colored checkers
into a vertical grid of columns and rows.
The objective seems simple:
the first player to connect 4
checkers in a row in any direction
— horizontal, vertical or diagonal —
wins the game.
Players can block their opponent’s
attempts to connect four in a row by
dropping their own pieces in the way.
Sounds simple enough, right?
With easy to learn rules, Match4 is a
game children love to play — yet it’s also
deeply challenging enough to thoroughly
engage adults... and stump them too!
To connect 4 pieces and win, players
call upon the skills of a good chess match.
There’s no drawing of a lucky card or rolling dice:
Match4 is pure strategy. This game takes brains.
Things can get interesting indeed. Fast —
once play gets going, concentration and
and competition turn utterly intense.
This is an excellent fast-action
mind game for both young and old.
Through play, children hone spatial processing and
pattern recognition, via omni-directional moves in
a vertical plane. They develop tactical strategies
and sharpen logical thinking skills.
AN ESSENTIAL ADDITION TO YOUR FAMILY'S GAME COLLECTION
It’s a perfect activity for childhood fun, great for when your
kids are stuck indoors on cold and rainy afternoons.
So much better than television!
Parents who loved this game when they were young
now love playing it as adults with their own children
...plus a great bonus is all the quality time
you get to spend with your child.
It’s a favorite on family game night, and
once the kids are snug in their beds,
It’s a great game for couples ~
The grownups take over,
playing long into the night.
This simple yet challenging and highly addictive
game has several variations on ways of play.
Requires no batteries, runs on brain power alone ~
and won’t drive anyone nuts with electronic pings,
buzzes and bleeps like so many cyber video games.
Kids can still very much appreciate a great 'low tech'
classic game, that tests their wits against opponents
one on one. Match4 engages players to connect with
the people around them – teaching turn-taking and
face to face communication.
