Pentago

An abstract strategy game for 2 players with four 3×3 grids arranged into a larger 6×6 grid. This game re-implements the well known “connect 4” with a twist: after placing a marble of his colour, the player has to twist one of the grids by 90°, so changing the board after every turn. The first player to get 5 in a row wins.

There are two slightly different editions available.
The birch one allows the corner to be lifted and then turned while the red/white plastic one has a pull-out, turn, push-back mechanism.
