About

Even though TwixT has received multiple awards and accolades in its history, we are excited to share a recent honor that TwixT received that we are extremely proud of!

This re-launched version of TwixT has earned STEM.org's highest product honor, the Approved STEM Trustmark. STEM is the widely used acronym for the educational concept of "Science, Technology, Engineering & Math", and is used as an educational methodology in schools. Products that possess a STEM accreditation assist children in cultivating important reasoning skills and greatly improve their learning experience. TwixT was selected for this honor based upon the success of displaying the concepts of Engineering & Math.

Played by two people, the goal of TwixT is to build a fence from one side of the game board to the other, each player both defending their fence, as well as preventing their opponent from doing the same. Blue and Red build their fences from behind each of their respective color borders to the other side of the board.

  • Red must connect their pegs from the left to the right of the board, behind the border rows.
  • Blue must connect their pegs from the top to the bottom of the board, behind the border rows.

GAME PIECES

Pegs

Pegs may be placed anywhere on the board by each player, with the exception of behind the colored border rows of the opposing player. For example, Red may not place a pegs behind Blue's border rows, and vice versa.

Connector Fences

Connector Fences may be placed to connect two pegs of the same color to secure a border between one or more segments of the fence. 

GAME PLAY

1. Player 1 (Red) plays first. The Red Player will place a peg anywhere on the board - with the exception of behind Blue’s two border rows.

2. To prevent an advantage to Player 1, Player 2 (Blue) may invoke the “Swap Rule” which will force a swap in sides. Player 1’s color changes to Blue, and Player 2’s color changes to Red. In the event that this rule is invoked, Player 1 may have one more turn to put one Peg of his or her new color on the board. The Swap Rule may only be invoked after the first turn of the game.

3. On remaining turns, players may place as many connector fences as they wish on their colored pegs only, or remove their own existing connectors/fences as necessary for their game strategy. Each player may, however, only place one new peg at a time during their turn.

4. New pegs placed do NOT have to connect to existing pegs, and may be placed anywhere on the board, aside from the opposing player's border rows.

5. Once a connector fence has been placed, it cannot be crossed by either Player. In the below example, Red has built a connector fence, and though Blue would normally be able to connect their pegs, they cannot cross Red’s connector fence. 

6. It is possible to connect more than two pegs of the same color together. 

7. The first player to connect their fence from one side to the other, with an uninterrupted link of connector fences from behind both of his or her border rows, wins the game. If neither player can accomplish this, then the game is considered a draw.

By supporting our Kickstarter project, we are offering premium and limited Kickstarter only rewards as part of our crowdfunding effort.

Collector's Edition -- $45

Elegantly housed in a solid locking Wooden Box, which itself weighs almost two pounds, the TwixT engraved Collector's Edition adds the upgrade of metal tins to house the pegs and connector fences.  

Name Recognition Package -- $150

Literally have your name written in the history books of TwixT (aka - Instruction Manual) for the first 2 years of the game reprint!  You and 29 other names will adorn the TwixT instruction manual as the Champions of this exciting re-release!

We are proud to be working with fulfillment partners on the campaign that specialize in shipping products to Europe and North America so that we can cover the VAT taxes and backers aren't hit with a surprise payment/tax when your pledge is delivered.

Please refer to the shipping costs below, which you must pay for at the end of the campaign inside our pledge manager.

Risks and challenges

The TwixT mold is ready to go, and the factory capacity is presently 10,000 units per month, which is why there is a three month window for production time should this campaign shoot through the roof. Ideally, TwixT would be ready to ship in October, but we want to set the expectation for you to receive it by Christmas Time.

We want to keep you in the loop with our progress, pictures, stories, and any issues via a bi-weekly status update posted to Kickstarter.

TwixT is finally back, and we are so excited to have you aboard for the ride!
