Wood & Aluminum Connect Four

By: on October 28, 2014

Can you hear that, Cornelius? It's the resounding clink-clink-clink of me dominating you at Connect Four all wood and aluminum and classy-like.

Restoration Hardware, a company famous for its ability to make standard, everyday items cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars, has worked its magic on the classic game of Connect Four. Strategize on alignment, play mad defense to block your opponent, and spend $200 bucks with tax and shipping to revel in your victory alongside a vintage finished wood board and silver and matte black aluminum playing pieces.
