Connect Four, also called Four in a Row, is a two players' game which takes place on a
7x6 rectangular board placed vertically between them. Both players put
alternately a piece of their own colour (red or yellow) into one of the
columns of the board. The goal is to get four pieces in a row. All directions
count (horizontal, vertical and diagonal). Who can connect four first is the
winner, alternately there is a draw. Although the rules are simple Connect four is a very
fascinating game, just like tic-tac-toe.
Fyrad 32 is a freeware version of the classic Connect four game available for Windows 95/98/NT.
Version 2.0 includes several changes that makes the
game even more fun to play. Challenge one of six built-in computer opponents, where
Stupid Joe is the weakest and Super Pete is the strongest. You can also play against a random opponent
at a random level. Tiered of playing against the computer? Well, Fyrad 32 is network playable, so there's
no problem to challenge your friends in Connect four as long as you're connected to the same network
(Internet or LAN).

Fyrad is freeware, but I would appreciate if you told me what you think of it. Did you find any bugs?
What can be done better? Are the computer opponents too smart/stupid? Is the network play working properly?
I think you get it... Send your comments, bug reports and questions to Peter Sunna -
