Effective strategies to become the victor

  • Start with the center column: If you are the first player, you should drop your disc into the center column of the grid first. This will help you connect four identical discs in all possible directions. Moreover, if you do that, your rival cannot decide which direction you will make a line of four identical discs.
  • Drop your disc into the same column in which her or his disc is placed: Being the second player is a disadvantage for you. However, placing your disc on top of your opponent's disc will help you create a draw.
  • Be active on offense instead of playing defensively: You must attempt to find an opportunity to create a line of four identical discs at all times.
  • Predict the potential moves of your opponent: You need to ask yourself about which column your enemy will drop his or her disc into and what he or she will do if you place your disc in this column. Think about them and build your own strategy to become the final winner.
  • Organize your discs in a 7-shape: It means that you should arrange three discs in a horizontal line and three discs in a diagonal line. If you do that, your rival cannot block your way and your winning chance will increase.
  • Trap your rival: You should create a space directly under the game-winning space and force your rival to put his or her disc into it.
