Moxie, a word game app for iPhone

If you like word games, you’ve got to try this iPhone app.
I agree with one of the reviews I read: “Can’t. Stop. Playing.”!

Download the original Moxie from iTunes here.

Moxie is an elegantly simple game where you make words as a list of randomly shuffled letters appear.  You earn points by creating chains of words.  For example, Use becomes Ruse becomes Rule becomes Rules.

In addition, certain specific words in a chosen category earn bonus points.  These “Moxie Words” are a key to higher scores.

I decided to work out the scores for the various Moxie Words in the “Animal” category.

Here then is my sorted list of Moxie Words along with their respective scores.
