First off here is a synopsis of what Bananagrams is all about...
Ages 7 & up. In this unique word game, players use tiles to create words crossword-style. The first player to use all their tiles is the winner. With multiple ways to play, this game is perfect for beginning spellers, as well as more advanced players. No pencil, paper, or board required.
I just love this game!! It is so much fun and completely addictive. You can play a game in a few minutes and it is also completely portable! When the kids get a little older this is definitely coming with us for waits at restaurants and appointments! For now my husband and I can enjoy this fun word game that is like Scrabble only better. I like that there is no board....so much of Scrabble is dependent on those mega point squares (no fair!!) and there in none of that here. A+ game!!
The Bananagram books are also a lot of fun. I have taken to keeping them in my car for those times when the kids fall asleep in the car and I have a few quiet minutes to myself. I whip out my Banangram books and put my mind to the test. These puzzles are fun AND challenging. The 10-Minute Banangrams is what I am traveling with now and these puzzles are broken up into half bananas (easier puzzles)and whole bananas (more challenging). There is also an included answer key that I really, really try not to cheat with!!
On top of the fun Bananagrams I checked out there are two brand new games from the Bananagram family...Appletters & PairsinPears.
APPLETTERS is a domino-like game for ages six and up where players connect letters in lieu of dots. The game comes in an apple-shaped cloth pouch containing 110 ivory-like tiles. In addition to the version for a younger audience, the game also includes instructions for more adult play - APPLE TURNOVER™ for an extra challenge and APPLESCORE™ for word lovers who like to keep score.
PAIRSinPEARS is a word construction game for ages six and up where players race to make pairs of connecting words in matching patterns. PAIRSinPEARS comes in a pear-shaped cloth pouch, containing four full alphabet sets in four beautiful distinct patterns. The game provides educational fun for children learning vowels and consonants, alphabetical order, word construction and pattern recognition.
After becoming a Bananagram addict I can't wait to add PairsinPears and Appletters to my game closet as well.
You can purchase any of these great Bananagram products at major retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
