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.

Hi Everyone,

I'm the developer of the word game Moxie which has been one of the most popular word games on the app store for the last year and a half with over 200,000 downloads of all versions and more than 10,000,000 games played.

Please forgive me if this is inappropriate, but I wanted to let everyone know that Moxie is free for very limited time. If you've been holding off on getting this game, now is a great time.

This is the first time the full version of Moxie has ever been free and it will only last a short time. There are NO ADS in this game.

...likewise... it has excellent pick-up-and-play value and really gets quite exciting when you're on a role with words. To be honest, I never thought I'd say that about a word game! Seriously though, many thanks for making this free! Now, my interest is definitely piqued for Moxie 2.... when? when when?!?!?!

Got this a couple of days ago and hooked already. Don't like the "Moxie words" much because they skew the scoring far too much, but enjoying it a lot.
