Similar to the classic Connect 4, this game is played on an upright, seven column game board. Each column has five positions. Player one alternates turns with Player two or a computer opponent by dropping a Kaplink down one of the columns. The Kaplink will drop to the lowest unoccupied position in that column. The first player to get four Kaplinks in a row (vertically, horizontally or diagonally) wins. The Round ends in a tie if the game board fills before someone wins. The game ends after four rounds. Bonus gems appear after the first round. If a Kaplink stops on the location of the Gem, the player receives extra points.
