The De Stijl 4-in-a-row Challenge Game

In this variation of "connect four," two prominent artists from the De Stijl art movement face off: play as Piet Mondrian or Gerrit Rietveld. See who can place 4 colored chips in a row first to win the game! Scroll down to learn more about these artists and this art movement after you play the game!

Please note: Due to the size of the game board, this game works best on a device with a larger screen, such as a desktop, laptop, or tablet.

HOW TO PLAY: Move your cursor or tap your finger on the gray area above the game grid to decide which column to drop your colored piece. Each player takes a turn dropping a colored chip; the first player to get 4-in-a-row wins the game!

The "De Stijl" art movement was a Dutch invention founded in 1917, and included both artists and architects. The primary idea was to advocate pure abstraction, simplify the composition to vertical and horizontal compositions, and restrict the color palette to black, white, red, yellow, and blue. Learn more about De Stijl at the Wikipedia entry here or at the Museum of Modern Art's website here.
