K'nex Score Four

Introduction: K'nex Score Four

About: I create games out of K'nex and sometimes a non game but mostly games. I enjoy all sorts of video games from pretty much any genre. I don't own any consoles however, just a pc. I'm also in the middle prog...

Ever heard of Score Four, also known as Advanced Connect Four? If you haven't, you have now. It is very hard to find Score Four in the stores as they stopped making them so why not make your own Score Four game out of K'nex!

Step 1: Building

Pic. 1: Build this. Pic. 2 : Add these blue rods. Pic. 3: Build this. Pic. 4: Place the board on top of the bottem section. Make sure the blue rods are going through the board. Pic. 5: Add those two blue rods to keep the board the board on. Pic. 6: Add those two blue rods. Pic. 7: What you should have now. Pic. 8: Add these part on the two blue rods. Pic. 9: Add these parts on the other two blue rods. Pic. 10: What you should have now. Pic. 11: Build these. Pic. 12: Add the parts you just made onto the game how the picture shows. Pic. 13: Collect 24 gray rings and 72 blue rings. Pic. 14: Put the rings in the back blue rods how the picture shows.

Now you are done!!!

Step 2: How to Play

The object of Score Four is to get 4 in a row any direction using the rings. One person uses the gray rings and another person uses the blue rings. Each player takes turns putting a ring into whatever blue rod they want to. The game keeps on going until one player gets 4 in a row. The person who got 4 in a row is the winner. Each player will have to try to get 4 in a row first but also will have to try to prevent the other player from getting 4 in a row by blocking them. If the rules are to complicated for you then think of Connect Four but only in 3D. That is what this game is. A 3D version of Connect Four. 

Note: Since blue rings are smaller than gray rings, the person with the blue rings places 3 blue rings into whatever blue rod they want to since 3 blue rings equals 1 gray ring.

The pictures below show some ways a player can win. There are more ways to win though. There are 76 different ways to get 4 in a row.

    Oblivitus, yeah it can be hard to keep track of. There are 76 different ways to get 4 in a row. You could trick your opponent by making it very messy then make a 3 in a row and your opponent may not see it. If you want to double trap him, you can do that with only the first floor. As it is hard for me to describe it, I will call each place a number and a letter. 1A would be the first blue rod. So, to double trap someone and make it seam like you are not. Place rings in this order. 1A, 4A, 2D, 2B, 2A. It msy seem obvious but with all the rows, columns and floors your opponent has to worry about, they may not notice it.

    That looks hard to keep track of. Good job though, it seems fun.
