Holiday fun with the family

Enjoy old games with a new twist

EXPRESSIONS OF SUCCESS, Author.js.

Game day for 2021 holidays

No need to toss out the old games you left behind at your parents house. Dust off the old “Connect Four” or buy and a new one. Today is the day the adults get to play an old game with a new twist.

How to play “Connect Four” with a twist.

  • Divide the family into groups of two
    • Choose which twist you want to play, or create your own
  • You will need paper and pens
    • You may need one person a head of time to answer the family questions and not be apart of the games
  • I have created topics, in order to play your color you must get the question right
    • The twist is there is no waiting turns.
  • By getting the correct answers to the trivia first, creates your play. The faster you answer the greater your chance of four in row first
