Description Edit | History

A Scrabble-like game without the board -- 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'. 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.

There are also variants included in the rules, and the game is suitable for solo play.

10 Bananagrams Quick Rules
A 1 page PDF for Bananagrams. It is the complete setup and rules, but not exhaustive or repetitive. I use it when explaining the game to a group of people. It assumes that you have the instruction booklet for reference. English Version 1.0 2011
