Quite simply WE LOVE BANANAGRAMS!
Banangrams is a nifty little word game that you’ll quickly become addicted to and want to play over and over again. It’s super simple rules and teeny tiny packaging make it a game you can quite literally play anywhere. It’s suitable for kids from around 7 years+ although I think you can easily include slightly younger children.
Basically to play the game you tip out all the letter tiles and turn them face down on the table, these are known as the “bunch”. Then depending on how many players there are, depends on how many tiles you need to take… so 2-4 players take 21 tiles, 5-6 players take 15 tiles and 7-8 players take 11.
Then you just whip over your tiles and make a crossword grid using your letters, first to use up all their letters shouts “peel” and then everyone takes a new tile from the bunch. If you get stuck with a letter you can’t use, you can exchange this but must take 3 tiles in return.
You can change your crossword grid as many times as you like, and you continue to play until there are less tiles in the bunch than there are players and the first player to use up all their letters wins.
It’s a super simple, super addictive word game and if you like Scrabble then you’ll love this! It’s great for playing with kids, not only because games are such a great way to bond and spend time with the kids but it’s effortlessly educational and brilliant fun! And it’s just so easy to play, literally tip it out and away you go, no setting up or keeping score, just play and have fun.
The little zip pouch make it very portable so good for taking on holiday, camping, picnics or just playing anywhere really.
Priced at just under £15 this is a brilliant family game and would make a fab gift for anyone young or old!
You can pick up Bananagrams from John Lewis.
