Moxie 2 is a fun word building game in which the player chooses individually shown letters and uses them to form words.
The game is made up of a grid of 3 rows, with 6 boxes across each. The game presents 64 letters individually which you can choose to use, or pass on. Chosen letters are laid out on each row in order to build words. You cannot build words vertically or horizontally.
The idea is to make as many words as you can in each row and be able to create new words with the ones you have. It can be as simple as adding a letter “s” to a word you have already created, or possibly adding a new consonant to a word to make a new one. Letters have different values in points, ranging from 1 to 10 points. The longer the word the more points you score. Fill all 6 squares and earn a whopping 500 points! On the other hand, should you break a word by adding a letter that is incorrect you get a “Twaddle”, taking away 30 points.
Before each game begins, the player chooses a category; either animal, vegetable, mineral, Moxiless and Daily Challenge. Each of these categories has a list of “Moxie Words” that give you big points, except for Moxiless, which has no Moxie words. For example, if you picked vegetable as a category, spelling a word such as “kelp” will give you bonus points. I definitely found some words that I had no idea existed while playing this addicting game. And, you can see just how good of a speller you are!
The idea is to create as many words as you can, and accrue as many points as possible. If you have enough points you will be shown on a list of players that have achieved high scores. You can also view all-time high scores and see where you sit within that zone.
Should you want to check out the game, you can download Moxie Classic, which is free. The difference between the games is that with Moxie 2 you receive an additional 2 categories to play, 6 boxes in a row vs. 5, you can add to a screen to see which letters you have left and you can undo a letter you just placed.
