MOXIE 2 is a tricky word game -- you're presented with 64 letters, one at a time, which you can place anywhere on the three lines to form words up to six letters long. For each unique word you spell, you get a score based on the letters included, multiplied by the length of the word. Spell one of the special "Moxie" words and you get a big bonus. But if you place a letter and the letters no longer form a word, you lose 30 points. The trick is being able to make words out of the existing letters, changing only one letter at a time, without knowing what letter you're going to get next. You can also hit "pass" to skip a letter, but then that letter is just lost forever. The game's graphic design is nice and elegant, with a wood-grain look but nothing too fancy or distracting. Playing Moxie 2 is a real challenge, particularly trying to avoid the dreaded "twaddle" and losing points. People who love word games may find this game quite entertaining.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
