Connect Four

games

#1

Made a custom connect four game for a friend with this Thingiverse design as a starting point.


#2

Very nice! Never thought to personalize it! :grinning:


#3

Now that is really cool! All sorts of customization ideas for games come to mind.


#4

Your friend will love it! Nothing like adding personalization!


#5

great idea :grinning:… now I will only will want to play personalized board games :heart_eyes:


#6

Love this! Great job!:muscle:


#7

Very nice! My only suggestion would be to either stain the pieces blue/red, or make one set of pieces a negative image so it’s noticeably darker than the other.


#8

Going to leave that up to my friend. I also thought if you’re playing across from one another each person could always make their name face toward or away from themselves making it obvious which disks were theirs.


#9

Or one set of discs in Maple and another in Walnut or Cherry.


#10

Your customization is brilliant! I especially love the letter cutouts on the frame. Instead of staining the wood, you could just invert the engraved part so that half the disks have light text on a dark background. Looks great regardless!

Would you mind sharing the modified file? I was working on this thingiverse file today, but it keeps crashing my software and I’m getting nowhere. I want to make it for my nephews for christmas. If not, that’s ok, I’ll get there…eventually. heh.


#12

no problem - I’ll send it when I get home from work tonight.


#13

Thank you! I was hoping the thingiverse file was cut ready, but it’s not…hence why I came to the forums looking to see if anyone else has already played with that file, and you did! yay!

Thanks you so much! I realized after I asked that one of the forum rules is not to ask for files. Whoops! I wasn’t thinking since it was originally a thingiverse file…I’ll be more careful next time! I really appreciate you sharing it, I’ll now be able to have it done for my nephews for christmas! And their names are actually Emily and Carter!..just kidding. :wink: That would be kinda weird. heh. I couldn’t even weld the main pieces together without having my program crash, but I’m sure it will let me remove the names :slight_smile:
Thanks again! :smiley:
