How many wires will I need to connect 4 IN-12 Nixies to my Arduinix? What type of wire/connector would be best? Thanks!

10 per tube for the digits, one per tube for the anode. I'm not sure if the IN-12 has a decimal as well, but if you plan to use it with the ArduiNix that would mean having another wire (as well as complicating your code quite a bit).

I bought the 12" ribbon jumpers off Adafruit, and cut them in half and peeled them apart where I wanted. It worked well. Before that I used old computer IDE cable, which worked fine but was hard to deal with and difficult to fit into the case I was building.
