    Connect Four was good, mind you it could get pretty competitive.

    Fischer v Spassky, Reykjavik, 1995. Spassky is playing Yellow.

    1. c1 b1
    2. b2 c2
    Concerned that the lower left of the board is becoming crowded, Spassky switches his attention to the right:
    3. d1 f1
    4. e1 e2
    Fischer is threatening the centre, and Spassky is forced to regroup:
    5. d2 f2
    Now Spassky makes the first of the two controversial moves for which the match is chiefly remembered: g1!
    6. g1 d3
    7. f3 f4
    And now Spassky's bewildering choice of e3 seals Fischer's triumph.
    8. e3 e4
    Critics wondered if Spassky's star was on the wane. Spassky said that he and Fischer just wanted the game over quickly as there was a punk rock concert in Reykjavik that night, and he and Fischer wanted to go dancing.
