Connect 4 is a two-player strategy game that can be played on a computer or with a board and disks. The board is made up of horizontal and vertical columns that contain slots, and each player takes turns dropping their disks into the slots. The object of the game is to match four of your disks in a connected line, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. While this may seem like a simple task, there is a lot of strategy involved, and learning the different techniques and tactics can help you win the game more often.
I've been playing Connect 4 for the last three years by practicing on Mustrum. It plays a perfect game and always wins when it starts first. Out of the other sites only connect 4 playground plays perfectly. I am at a level that when I start first against these programs i win 90-95% of the time. And yes, the player who starts first always wins provided the player plays perfectly which is not easy. The first player always controls the first, third and fifth rows while the second player controls the second, fourth and sixth rows.
