Connect Four is such a famous game that most of you must have played it at least once in your life!

I had both the regular and pocket version when I was little and it's one of the games I played the most with. I still have the big one, even though some discs are missing...
The base seems pretty easy to make so I thought I would try to build it using cardboard!
As you can probably notice from my other instructables, I love cardboard because you can do so many different things with it! And let's not forget that recycling (or upcycling, in this case) is very important too.

This Connect Four worked perfectly in my mind and I thought that making it would have been easy...but of course I was wrong! :D 
Building it following these instructions will be much easier for you, so don't worry!
The reason why it was so hard for me is because I designed the whole thing in my head only, so I encountered some obstacles that made me think about giving up more than once. But I am stubborn and after a week of trying, here I am! :)

I hope you like it!!
