This

It had to be Connect 4 by Hasbro because its the game that I know quite well and the one that I enjoy playing as well. I have never actually heard of the game Sorry by Hasbro so that made this choice much easier because I know that I will enjoy this game.

Fun

I remember getting this for Christmas as a kid. We played it all day. The whole family took turns, doing a championship type thing. It was a rare occasion for our family to play together all day like that, so it brings back a nice memory.

It's still a fun game.

Connect 4

I can honestly relate to both though. Inbetween the period of traditional board games, into the more electronic age, you'd still find plenty of board games at my house as a kid. Including "Connect 4" and "Sorry" by Hasbro. The family favorite was Monopoly. But personally, I always preferred "Sorry" as the dominant board game. In this comparison, however, I'd go with Connect 4. It's a simpler game between the two. Both I'm very familiar with. Although I've have probably played more of "Connect 4" than "Sorry".

Connect 4

This is indeed a classic kids game and one I played many times. It was always fun to see the sliding discs and it was a good game that many people played when they were young. Even though I played a lot of games when I was young, Sorry wasn't one, so based on experience, I will have to go with Connect 4.

Classic!

I've got really fond memories of playing Connect 4; when I was younger we'd gather, family and friends, and play improvised Connect 4 contests with each other.

For me, those small gatherings brought a kind of fun that is hard to find; the familiarity, the joy of being together... It's a really lovely memory I have, even more so because one of the family friends we played with already passed away.

The game itself is wonderful and entertaining even if we don't take into account my nostalgia, so I naturally pick it!

This is awesome!

I love playing Hasbro games and the best game for me is connect 4. I remember before when I was a kid, we used to play it everyday. It is so much fun especially with your family. You can play it also with your friends. It is look like a simple game but it has a logic. You must form a 4 line while other players block your strategy.

I don't know the other game

I would just vote for this because I'm more familiar with it. To be completely honest I would probably just play video games or watch a movie rather than play any of these but if I really need to or if there's nothing else available then I'd much rather go with this one instead because I already know the rules and I would be too lazy to have to learn the new rules for the other game which I don't really feel like playing in the first place anyway.

Connect 4 Must have been more popular

I remember both of these games from my childhood. But have to go with Connect 4 because I remember playing this game with family and friends more than the game called Sorry! That means it must have been more popular in my circles.

Connect 4

I've been playing this game ever since I was a kid and I do really enjoy it. This is a kind of game that you never get tired of competing it with someone because each game is unique and it's an accomplishment if you defeat your opponent with the strategy that you execute. I do miss playing this game and I hope to have this as soon as possible.

It's fun and well-known.

I like playing this game because you can finish it within a matter of minutes. I too haven't played "Sorry" so I don't have much to say about it.

All I know is that I love passing time using Connect 4 with my young kids. Sometimes even with my friends.

Sorry! by Hasbro

Sorry! by Hasbro
Hasbro's Classic game Sorry! Can be found on Amazon for $7.99. Shipping is free if you spend $25. This game is for 2 to 4 players, ages 6 and up. This mystery solving game really uses the brain! Included with the game board are 12 pawns, 45 cards, instructions, and 2 power up tokens.

To play the game, you must draw a card to see how far you can move one of your pawns. If you happen to land on a slide, you can bump an opponent. If you happen to get one of the power up tokens, you will be able to go to your safety zone. If you do happen to get bumped, your pawn will need to go back to the start of the game.

Pros
  • classic game
  • fun
  • assist children in counting
  • perfect to have in a game room
  • timeless
  • great for family game night
  • rules are easy
  • well made
  • worth the money
  • arrived in timely manner
  • nice packaging
  • enjoyable
  • a wide range of ages can play
  • 2 to 4 players

Cons
  • not like the original sorry
  • board game is small
  • cards are cheap feeling
  • cards could rip easily as they are thin
  • pawns are easy to knock over
  • 3 game pieces were missing

Sorry!

Growing up I loved playing sorry! We had this game at school and if it was rainy outside or too cold in the winter for recess, we would get to play it. I remember so many fun times with friends. It was challenging at times, but a game that we all loved playing. I never had it at home, which is probably why I looked forward to playing inside at recess on days when the weather did not cooperate.

Sorry but... SORRY!

When I was a kid - I preferred SORRY over Connect 4. Connect 4 wasn't a bad game though.

Connect 4! This game brings back memories of being in school and stuck indoors for recess when it was way too cold to go out to play. Everyone would fight over the Connect 4 set. Now as a parent, I still lean toward this game over Sorry, simply for the fact that it is far easier to play with younger children. There is no reading of cards for instructions, no keeping track of rules about bumping and being sent back "home", and the crying that may occur because it's not fair to have to be sent to the start again. Just get 4 chips of your color in a row, and you win. No parents required if we are busy and can't play with the kids.

I wonder if there are players who buy the classic games that are featured in this discussion. I am asking this because there are so many free apps in the play store that are easy to download. If you will ask me, I will not buy a game when I can get some other games for free. It’s not really being frugal but just practical. Anyway, pardon me if this is a letdown to the products in this discussion. I am just being honest with my opinion.
