HOW TO PLAY
Moxie is all about transforming words into new words. You start with a hand of 52 letters that you go through "Solitaire" style. Place each letter on the board or "Pass". If you "Pass" you can't go back to that letter.
You score points by:
1. Making unique words with the letters
2. Transforming your words into other words by adding and replacing letters. For example: "TIN" becomes "TINE" which becomes "TILE" which becomes "TILED" and so on.
3. Spelling special "Moxie words" for bonus points
Once you spell a word and start transforming it into other words, don't break the word chain! That's a "Twaddle" and you'll lose points.
There's no time limit and while it helps to know a lot of words, Moxie will more greatly reward those who like to think strategically.

What's New in Version 1.74
What's New - Moxie Version 1.74
We had to make some tough choices in this release order to be able to continue improving Moxie.
First we've dropped support for iOS 6. If you have an iOS 6 device and have already downloaded a previous version of Moxie, you should still be able to access the older version of Moxie on the App Store.
Second we've eliminated all color themes except for Classic.
If these changes affect you, we sincerely apologize. However in the coming months we will be working on incremental improvements to Moxie in order to bring it more up to date. We really think you'll like the way things shape up.
Please be patient with us, and thanks so much for making Moxie such a great success over the last few years.
A must-have game
I’ve fallen in love with this game. It took me a bit to understand what to do. That is, I knew the rules, but it took me time to understand how best to place letters for maximum maneuverability. Because that’s really what this game needs. Part of it is luck, depending on what letters show up when. But part of it is also being able to adapt to spontaneous changes in situation while still allowing your changes to be flexible. Because if you can’t change your changes, you won’t score. Plus, there are handy word lists for bonuses, so it’s always good to aim for those if you get a favorable letter. Then, depending on luck of the draw, you might just spell the word and get the extra points.
Having a large vocabulary helps, but really, it’s not about the rarity of a word. It’s about being able to manipulate the letters you get to best advantage and on the fly. This is a game I would recommend to anyone wholeheartedly. In fact, I’m off to buy Moxie 2. The most unique word game I’ve come across yet, and no ads.
I like word games and puzzles. I'm not sure how I came across this one. Deceptively, It looks simple. I think I downloaded it because of the reviews. I played it a few times, played it a few more. Then I got curious and looked at the high scores. I became hooked trying to figure out how they got those high scores! Competitive much? Well, I DO like a good puzzle!
Great for students!
I like how this game can engage students no matter what their level of vocabulary. The idea is to be persistent and use some degree of strategy. Teens won't admit it, but these "smart games" are so much better than a stupid movie or poorly made video game.
