Connect Four is easily one of the great, most infuriating, argument-starting, fun games that will ever grace the table at a family gathering or dinner party. The idea is simple: connect four dots horizontally or vertically, while simultaneously blocking your opponents attempts to do the same. Hasbro’s classic is one we’re all familiar with. Connect the blue plastic legs to the yellow plastic game board, and then drop in red or black plastic pieces in an attempt to crush your sibling before your parent ultimately intervened. Restoration Hardware has taken Connect Four to the next level with their set made of natural finished wood and silver or matte black finished aluminum pieces. It’s the same game, but it’s been updated with quality materials to make it equal parts display piece and entertainment.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
