I know that it is different to Scrabble. It's cheap enough to be worth buying a copy anyway.

True, but in order to make a german copy it would help to have lettercount first so I can decide on how many copies I would need to order.

Lol... at least you waited until someone asked... I just bought the game, played it once, counted everything, and was logging on to input it. At least I don't have to type it out...

And, incidentally, my count matches yours.

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

I was taught this over the weekend using tiles borrowed from a Scrabble set. Maybe the distribution was a bit off but it was still a lot of fun for the time it took.

Then again, one of the other people at the table described it as "all the ick of Scrabble condensed into 3 minutes."

I don't know the letter distribution, but yes, there is definitely a French version of Bananagrams.
