The last 24 hrs. I've been unable to play my games here.Whenever I click on an active game the site loads a blank page and I can't do anything.I don't know if the site is down,or there's a problem .Any ideas would be welcome.  Huh?

It’s been said before but 2 things really needs to be added.

1. The pie rule. The first player advantage is huge in this game and at a high level there’s pretty much no point playing without it.
2. Diagonal grid lines and numbering. This would help a lot and give you a much better overview of the board.

I made a suggestion in the new players topic then say this feed. Here is my suggestion, What if there was a way to link a cell phone so when your opponent plays and it is your turn you get a text.

Hello all! Love that I recently found this site. I used to play in the late 70's and thought one day, I wonder how much Twixt costs these days and searched Google and found this site. Hope to get to play some of the good players and relearn the game, I used to be pretty good.
I do have one suggestion, what if there was a way to link a cell number so you would get a text message when an opponent plays and it is your turn.

Here is a variation from a game I recently played.

It is purple's turn. On this server, I could remove the H5-J6 link and then play i5 linking to H7:

But if I did that, yellow would win immediately with J4:

Under standard rules, the only way for purple to win is to place a peg at i5 and do not remove the H5-J6 link, do not add a link from H7 to i5 on this move.

yellow cannot prevent purple from adding the H7-i5 link later. Play might continue with yellow playing at K4 to prevent purple's double link from i5 to J6,

And now purple wins with -i5'/H'6K6 (using Alan Hensel's notation at http://www.ibiblio.org/twixtpuzzles/)

But such a move is not possible on the TwixtLive server, because there is no way to add a link between two pegs already on the board.

Of course, this pales in comparison to the importance of adding the swap rule, but I thought I would mention it anyway.

I vote a hearty yes on numbering and grid lines. Numbering, in particular, makes it much easier to discuss the game in the chat boxes. For example, if one is trying to introduce a novice to the game, it is very "handy" to be able to say something like "you should have played g5 instead of f4."

I'm rather tepid on the pie rule. It wasn't there when I 1st learned to play (on a 3M box set). That said, I'd use it if it were available. It does make the game more balanced.

I think I'd like to see you tweak your original timeout algorithm to implement a default timeout of, say, 30 days. You don't really have to change the user interface. Leave the selections as 2 min, 20 min or none. But, "none" times out after 30 days -- or 60 or whatever maximum period you think is reasonable. Those games where some clown either starts or picks up a game, then disappears after a move or two (or sometimes none) are annoying.

This should be an option, for example a check box that turns the guide lines display on and off. It appears most of the players who voted here would like to use them, but at least one voter would not.

Love it Mark. I appreciate your time even considering doing this. It would be great.

Yibyab was just leaving when I just started on this site in March 2014.Last time he popped in, I asked mtbikesman and yibyab if they would play a game. Yibyab, said he could not win, Twixt was not like riding a bike, so he graciously declined. Too long off from the game.
