By using the argument -nogui, you can play connect 4 on the command line. The computer will take the first go and then await your move.
To make your move, you must type in the number corresponding to the column and pressing enter. This will then cause a counter to be 'dropped' into the array. You are unable to enter a number outside of the given range, as that will throw an Illegal Column Exception.
When there is a line of 4 counters of the same colour, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally, the winner is declared.
By using the argument -gui, you can play connect 4 using a Graphical User Interface. You can select who plays each other, whether human or computer. The default is Human v Human, and player 1 will always have the first go.
