The Help Lines

If possible you should use a Twixt Board with help lines (looking like a star) as shown below.

If you play Twixt at Little Golem you can select such a board at "Main --> Edit User Properties" by selecting the check box for the Larger board.

The advantage of this board is that you can see immediately if a planned run might be successful for you - without guessing or finger pointing the whole way through.

see also the chapter Crucial Diagonals on the Twixt Variations page.
