A Scrabble-like game without the board -- much like Pick Two!, but without the letter values._x000D_
Using a selection of 144 plastic letter tiles in the English edition, each player works independently to create their own 'crossword'. When a player uses up all their letters, all players take a new tile from the pool. When all the tiles are gone, the first player to use up all the tiles in their hand wins._x000D_
There are also variants included in the rules, and the game is suitable for solo play._x000D_
There is also a Double Bananagrams version, twice as big and with twice the tiles.
Packaged in zippered cloth bananas, which hang by their stems on display rack banana trees.
"Ivory-like," very tactile, heavy plastic tiles with rounded corners.
Now imitated in not one but TWO fruit-shaped cloth bags of tiles. Both apples - which lack the ban-anagrams pun.
Available at bookshops, game stores, toy stores and even mass market stores like Target.
There's a Bananagrams book out now.
Similar to Pick Two, Syzyzgy, Snatch and other letter tile games.
