Description

Bananagrams is a fast and fun word game that requires no pencil, paper or board, and the tiles come in a fabric banana-shaped carrying pouch. One hand can be played in as little as five minutes. Much like Pick Two!, but without the letter values.

Using a selection of 144 plastic letter tiles in the English edition, each player works independently to create their own ‘crossword’ faster than one’s opponents. When a player uses up all their letters, all players take a new tile from the pool. The object of the game is to be the first to complete a word grid after the “bunch” of tiles has been depleted.

There are variants included in the instructions, such as Banana Smoothie and Banana cafe for limited set skills or space-deprived places, and the game is suitable for solo play.

    10 mins spare? Split!! Multiple generations can play, you may want one more game!

    Bananagrams is what you get by taking all the fun parts of Scrabble and smooshing them into a ten minute deliciously moreish experience in a banana-shaped bag.

    I know, I know, I suggested that there are fun bits in Scrabble, but it is satisfying getting long or unusual words down. Now imagine that satisfaction but without the restrictions of seven letters and a limited board layout to play with – you can make all the silly words you like and don’t have to worry about giving away that triple letter score by doing so.

    Bananagrams is not the area control game Scrabble is, but more a free-form race to the finish. And will the best dictionary mind win? No, absolutely not.

    Well, OK, maybe, but not because they have a dictionary of ridiculous two letter words in their head. You don’t need any of that rubbish, but instead the ability to adjust on the fly.

    Bananagrams is excellent for what it is, and now I can play a word game with my mum without ever having to wonder what on Earth “qi” means again.
