4 insanely expensive versions of childhood games
If you ever passed the time in your childhood by desperately trying to get four plastic tokens to line up before your opponent did, you just might be thrilled by the new home décor collection by designer Edie Parker.
The collection, available on Moda Operandi, sells fancy, elevated versions of several classic, childhood games — perhaps the most noteworthy being Connect Four.
Officially called "Four in a Row," the upscale version by Parker is handmade of acrylic and costs $1,495. You're probably more familiar with the one that looks like this:

The whimsical collection also features a colorful $2,495 Tic Tac Toe board with golden letters, a $2,295 domino set, a $1,295 box to hold playing cards, and a $1,395 glow-in-the-dark puzzle box decorated with obsidian sand.

If you're lucky enough to have a budget that allows you to spend hundreds of dollars on fancy board games, you'd better act quickly — the collection will only be available until June 29, 2018, according to the website.
But if you don't have a spare $1,500 lying around, you can always indulge your nostalgia with the classic Hasbro version of Connect Four that sells on Amazon for $8.77.
