T1: A Program to play Twixt
TwixT is a boardgame by Alex Randolph.
T1 is a program to play TwixT by Johannes Schwagereit (mail(at)johannes-schwagereit.de).
No longer being developed.
These versions of T1 play quite weak (but at least they beat www.twixt.de).
My recommendation is to use ‚T1j‘ instead.
Version 0.6 Major update: Pie-Rule, improved GUI, improved playing strength

A Screenshot from an old version. The interesting point is: It shows the nine possible links which have to be checked before placing a given link.
