I know what you are thinking…this must be a huge box full of bananas and a scale!
It’s the anagram game that will drive you bananas! –hence BANANAGRAMS!
The game’s 144 tiles come in a cute, yellow, banana shaped zipper-pouch! It’s a pouch that you can bring anywhere-to restaurants, picnics, school, airplanes… All you need is a table (no pens, paper, batteries, or timer). You don’t even need to wait your turn!
You can play Bananagrams with up to 8 players of all ages. Each player gets some tiles, someone declares “split” and the game begins. Everyone plays at their own pace and level, using their tiles to form individual crossword. If you can’t use a letter, you can “dump” that letter to take 3 new ones. Run out of letters, and “peel”, making every player to take a new tile. When there are no tiles left, the winner having used all of their tiles, yells “BANANAS!”
It’s a blast! I’ve been known to stay up with friends playing Bananagrams. I know they’ve wanted to leave, but I just need to play “one more time.”
There are several simple variations to playing, or you can come up with your own. Some play with some interesting categories of words (age appropriate, of course!), providing lots of laughs.
Bananagrams was listed as a must-have, one of the top ten best travel games and has been listed as a best-seller among toy and gift retailers.Wikipedia It was named 2009 Game of the Year by the Toy Industry Association.
Bananagrams is a great game to play with company, friends and family. For after dinner, at a picnic or while waiting at a restaurant, you won’t want to leave home without it!
