Have you ever played the classic game, Connect 4 ? Well of course you did, and if you didn’t, just try once with your friends and you’ll get addicted to it. It’s never too late. But for those who really don’t know what is it, the rules are simple. For this game, you need to align 4 coins of the same color in the same row. It can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. The first to achieve that wins the game. But did you know that Beyoncé was a big fan of this game?
More than that, did you know that Beyoncé was one of the best players of Connect 4? Even more, did you know that she’s never been beaten at this game by anyone? That’s the investigation the fan account @beyoncegarden started on Twitter a week ago. For her, Beyoncé has never lost to this game. But is it true? Let’s find out.
The Connect 4 British Interview
In 2008, Beyoncé was invited to UK’s TV morning show “This Morning” for an interview. But what she didn’t expect was that she was going to play one of her favorite games by surprise, as you can see in the following video.

In this interview, Alison, the host, asks Beyoncé if she knows Connect 4, and Beyonce says she’s really good at it. And what’s amazing in this sequence is that she is taken by surprise, she wasn’t prepared to play at all, also she’s live. But even though it is the case, we can see how her tactics are amazing and how she manages to win the game.
Always humble, she tells the host that she let her win, but we all saw what happened, Beyoncé totally tricked her with smiles and jokes. And guess what, that’s what she does all the time. Not only she knows the tactics, she also knows how to intimidate her opponent.
An Additional Talent Of The Queen
Now let’s get further into this investigation. The video we have just seen before was a famous one and most of her fans knew about it already. However, the next one is older and quite special, because it shows how much Beyoncé is implied to winning at Connect 4.
no like it’s very much an additional talent of hers😭 pic.twitter.com/lKhEZL6R6q

In this video, as we can see, she first tries to intimidate her opponent. Then after getting in his head, she uses her tactics and her friend realizes there’s no way to win anymore. She’s really a Connect 4 tactician and It’s scary because you see how much she cares about winning the game.
Did Kanye West Beat Her?
Now, there’s another mystery with an old picture of Beyoncé and Kanye West playing Connect 4. In the following picture, we can see that the rapper has won against Beyoncé and she seems to admit her defeat.

But is that real? Did Kanye really beat her? A lot of people in the Tweet’s response doubt it.
Is it me or is there no way this is legit? Ye’s solo red in the 5th column would have to have been the last play. B’s last would have been in 4,6, or 7. There’s no need for any of those plays and no way you miss the obvious 4 about to be made on the bottom row. She took a dive.

In this tweet, Samuel analyzes the game and finds out there’s something wrong with it. For him, there’s no way a game of Connect 4 can end like this because what happened on it is simply impossible. So there are two solutions. It can be a joke of both artists related to the legend of Beyoncé never losing at Connect 4, or Beyoncé letting Kanye West win, as Valentine says in the following tweet.
that’s the face of someone who just let someone win 😭

The Connect 4 Theory
A fan elaborated a theory that doesn’t seem to be one anymore if we think about it. Beyoncé seems to be really involved with things when it is linked to number 4.
4 is her lucky number. She was born on a 4th. She was married on a 4th and her spouse was also born on a 4th. They named their daughter IV. Their ring finger tattoos are IV. And she always wins at connect 4 😂

Also, if you remember, one of Jay-Z’s album was named 4:44, and that completes the theory. And after knowing that, we understand why she’s unbeatable at Connect 4. She really believes in the number 4 and the number 4 believes in her. So did someone really beat Beyoncé at Connect 4? That’s probably something we’ll never know.
