From 1970 through 2012 I have appeared on numerous national and local television programs. The TV coverage varied: Captain Kangaroo, Eyewitness News, The Discovery Channel. So many were interested in my game Connect 4. The most asked question was: How did I invent the game? (Watch the video “Connect Four, TV Interviews”, below.)

I never get tired of explaining how I invented Connect 4 because I believe it is one of those “eureka” moments. It illustrates so well and so succinctly the process of invention. In simple terms, I placed a thought in my mind. Inventing games was how I started in the toy industry. I remember thinking that I wanted to invent a game that was different from any other game ever invented. Wow. That was quite a statement, but it worked. You will see and hear the story watching these videos. It is a story I have told over and over again for the last 38 years.

I am very proud to be the inventor and designer of a game that is played around the world.
