cdiffell 2 So far so good. This is a great light game ala Pulling Strings - non-threatening and yet with enough strategy to keep it interesting. No surprise it's from Reiner Knizia.

Laurie_Menke 2 The adult version of Connect Four. I enjoyed Connect Four as a kid, then it got too easy. Thanks to Complica, it is enjoyable once again! :o)
nih 2 Interesting variation on Connect 4 - the idea of shifting the pieces down when a column is full adds a few tactical nuances!
Cerulean 1 Nice variation on Connect Four.

neilb 1 Surprisingly tricky for such a "small" game (small playing area, simple rules). I like it!
nycavri 1 Surprisingly effective as a tournament game, minimizing the first player advantage.
Aaron 0 Need to play more. So far, it's an interesting Connect-4 variant.

Zotmeister 0 For those who think Connect 4 is too short, I guess.
Draw5PlayAll -1 ...cannot grasp the strategy even after more than 5 games.

173-130 in favor of player one. 10 moves average. Sigh.
