Connect Four is a classic two-player connection game that's been reimagined by Cristiano Maci as 'Four in a Row' on 3D printing platform MyMiniFactory.

The free downloadable 3D printing template includes a number of square chips that can be dropped into the standing unit in order to carry out gameplay that challenges players to be the first to arrange four tokens in a row. As a 3D-printed object, this one's complexity is identified as "very easy" and takes only about four hours to print.

While leading board game producers are breathing new life into old games with technology, many consumers are turning to the familiarity of charming retro designs for creating their own low-tech board games from scratch.
