Suspended Grid is a game system based on the popular game Connect Four where the goal is to connect four game tokens in a grid either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The tokens have been changed to identifiers according to Kimberlé Crenshaw's theory of intersectionality. Intersectionality or the social categorizations of race, class, and gender considers aspects of identity as not existing separately but influence each other and are interwoven through social interactions.
