The object of the game is to be the first player to get a 4 in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Setup the board and each player takes a set of colored balls. Set the orange ball to the side. Both players are next to each other, facing the board. On the count of 3, both players simultaneously bounce balls off the table and into the grid trying to get a 4 in a row. Balls that miss may be re-thrown, but once a ball is in the grid or on the ramp, it may not be touched or moved. You may not make a 4 in a row with balls that are on the ramp, only ones that are in the grid.
The first player to get a 4 in a row in the grid, wins. If both players have bounced all their balls and these still is no winner. Then the player who had bounced all their balls first grabs the orange tiebreaker ball and throws it first. Take turns bouncing the orange ball. The first player to land the orange ball into any grid spot, not the ramp, wins the game.

Game Night Tip: This works GREAT for adult-only parties as well. We we play this on occassion with friends and we "kick it up a notch". We play in teams of two. Every other one goes. When one of the teams gets four in a row and wins. The losing team has to take a shot! 🤣
