TwixT

TwixT is a two-player abstract strategy board game invented by Alex Randolph. It is a member of the connection game family, along with games such as Hex, Havannah, Y, and Star.

Twixt is played on board with a 24×24 grid of holes, with the four corners missing. The two players are Red and Black; the topmost and bottommost rows belong to Red, and the leftmost and rightmost rows belong to Black. (Different sets may use different colors.)

The rules are as follows:

3M originally published TwixT as part of its Bookshelf Games line; Avalon Hill took over publication at a later date. It is no longer produced in the United States of America, although Schmidt Spiele produced copies of the game in Germany, and Kosmos published a version of the game in 1998.
