5. Hasbro Family Game Night Connect 4

Connect 4

Welcome to Connect 4. This is perhaps the easiest of the Family Game Night packs and will only take about one hour to complete. However you will need two controllers in order to complete it in that time frame.

We'll start by getting the only single player achievement in this pack out of the way. Set up a custom match, one round to win the game, turn off max points, and set the timer to two minutes. With this set up, select continue and then play a game of Power Chip. If you're unfamiliar with this game mode, it's Connect 4 but with game modifiers. There are 6 modifiers in total but for the moment we only need to focus on getting and using one of them. One of the Power Chips has the icon of a hand. It's ability prevents your opponent from placing any pieces in the column you play that chip in.

The game starts and you'll flip a Connect 4 piece to see which of you will play first. Keep restarting the match until you go first (which happened more times than not). When the gameplay starts, move all the way to the left column and play your piece there. Play your second piece on top of it and then you need to play a "Hand" Power Chip on top of that. You're hoping to get the "Hand" Power Chip on the 3rd of 4th turn, but this requires a little luck. Once you manage to score, set the controller down and let the time run down. You'll win the round, and the game. Repeat this process 3 more times and you'll unlock the first achievement on our list. If you mess up, the AI manages to score, or you're worried you might lose the game, press start and quit the game. Quitting the game will not cause you to lose your winning streak.

Now you should have unlocked these two achievements:

With the only single player achievement out of the way we'll fly through the remaining achievement. You'll need to back all the way up to the "Press Start" screen. Once there press start to enter again, but this time sign in a second controller... The next few achievements will be a lot easier!

We're going to go for two achievements at the same time. Set up a custom "Original" game with one round wins. Once the game starts you might need to fiddle around a bit to have the main account going first. For this achievement we'll playing from left to right. Have your main account drop the chips down the first three columns and the second controller will drop its chips on top of the ones you just played. After placing chips in the first three columns, skip a column. Next, place your chips in the last three remaining columns, with player 2 still dropping its pieces on top of yours. Last, drop a chip in the middle column and you'll win with a Connect 7. This win will unlock at least two achievements.

Now we'll be working on the draw. It's very easy to do. Just drop the chips for both players so that the board ends up looking like this and as soon as the last piece is dropped you'll unlock this achievement:

Next, choose play again so your main profile is going first. In this game we'll be going for the time related achievements, if you haven't already won them. Aim for your account to make a Connect 4. Just start by dropping a chip into the middle and having player 2 drop its chip on top of yours. Move one column to the left or right and continue until you have a Connect 4. Using this method you can win a game in about 15 seconds and you'll unlock both timed achievements.

Continue using this same method until you've unlocked both of the game win achievements. It seems like it'd take a long time but it wont... it should take less than 30 minutes. Doing so will snag you these two achievements:

Last achievement now. Set up a custom Power Chip game with no score limit and a time limit of 8 minutes. Keep playing until you've played each of the 5 power chips. They are:

  • "2X" - This chip will result in you getting two times the amount of points you would when making a Connect 4.
  • "Hand" - This chip stops your opponents from dropping a chip in that column for 1 round.
  • "Explosive" - This chip destroys any adjacent pieces.
  • "Newton" - This chip pushes the entire column down by one.
  • "Heavy" - This chip pushes the entire column down completely, leaving only itself.

Once you've played each of these chips at least once, make sure you're in the lead and then just set the controller down and let the time run down. When the game ends you'll unlock this achievement:

Power Chip Collector

Win a game of Connect 4 Using all of the Power Chip types at least once
