I do not love absence more than a good challenge. It is the only type of series that series: word games and puzzles. Initially, I saw the GiiKER Smart Four as a bit of a challenge similar to the Connect Four. The multi-level aspect gave me more of a challenge than I expected. Find out more in this GiiKER Smart Four review.
GiiKER Smart Four Configuration
Unpacking the GiiKER box smart oven, you won’t find much, but you don’t need absence anymore:
- table mobility
- blank chips and adverse
- charging cable
- Quick Start Heading
- Route of successful bidder
The stock board needs to be loaded before you use it, so this is the first thing you’ll want to do. A full charge takes approximately 90 minutes. Plug the USB-A end of the supplied cable into a charging boulder (not supplied) and this USB-C end into the back of the serial board. This will cause the center square to light up and flash.
To help you nominate certain aspects of the series, you’ll need the Smart Fur app. The licensee’s manual provides a QR code that allows you to scan it to transfer it to the Google Play Store or App Store for direct download. Click on the Bluetooth symbol at the top right of the app to connect the serial board. Creating an account is not essential, but you will need it to risk roster battles with other Smart Oven players.
Playing with the GiiKER Smart Four
The GiiKER Smart Four allows you to play two different games: Connect Four and Lights Out. With Connect Four, you can take a risk with a person physically with you, against the “Android” or against a random Smart Four participant. With Lights Out, you are the only participant.
You can launch and risk without interacting with the app, or press “AI Master” in the app. Whether or not you do it through AI Master, press and hold the center square of the stock board to turn it on. Connect Four games are on the left side and Lights Off is on the right. To risk Connect Four against the automaton, choose Possible, Medium or Hard with the first three squares lit on the left side or the bottom square for one on one mode with certain that it is with you.

If you’re playing a head-to-head battle, it doesn’t matter who goes first. You just have to nominate the two colors of your chips: white or adverse. If you are playing Android, choose your color and Android will prompt you afterward to nominate which series will move first.
If you are playing Android, he shows a square where he wants to risk. You must put a tile of its color in this square and press down. This prevents it from flashing. You can then put a tile of your color wherever you want. Push down again. This tells the Android where you played and it’s your turn again. The series continues in this way until there is a winner.
The object of Connect Four is, of course, to get four tiles in a row. Where it gets tricky is that it can still be on different levels, since they can be stacked. The four can be crossed, going down, diagonally, all on the same level, or even going up, like one going down, the second level in the back square, etc.
This is where I would make up for it at first. I would look at it in three dimensions by risking where to risk next. I just had to take my time and consider all the levels. This is also where it takes you and becomes compulsive.
You can also participate in a list battle against another Smart Four participant. Tap Online Battle in the app and you will find a worthy opponent.
The app will tell you who is taking the turn and, unlike risking Android or one-on-one, there is a 30-second time limit for your turn. As with the automaton, the board will light up a square where your opponent has played, and you must put a token on that square and press down. It’s frustrating that sometimes the series would freeze and the other participant would be the ostensible winner. This only happened in listed combat mode.
If you tap on the trophy icon in the app, a ranking will be displayed. Below the trophy icon is a camera icon. Tapping on it will bring up videos of your series against your opponents so you can review your series and see where it went wrong… or right! You can also see the same in games against Android if you played through AI Master.

Lights Out is a much less complicated series and there are no options to nominate colors, head-to-head, or roster battles.
The board will light up an unpredictable set of squares and your goal is to turn them all off. When he touches any square, the surrounding squares turn off or light up, depending on their flagrant state. This continues until all the lights are “off”.
GiiKER Smart Oven is fixed on Amazon for $79.99. As an electronic tabletop series, this is a fair price, but considering there are certainly similar digital games without a physical board for much, much cheaper, the value can reasonably be questioned.
The series can be a great way for your child to spend some time working on their brains this summer. It’s designed for ages 6 and up, but it’s still fun for adults. If you like organization games, they will keep you and your children entertained.
