The anagram game that will drive you BANANAS!

This award-winning word game needs no pencil, paper, or bulky board. It is fast and fun. One hand can be played in as little as 5 minutes. Play at home, in restaurants, campgrounds, etc. Great for travel!

Contains:
  • Cloth banana shaped pouch
  • 144 letter tiles

    Rules for Play:
  • Place all 144 tiles face down on center of table. These tiles are referred to as the "BUNCH". For games of 2-4 people, each player takes 21 letters from the bunch, keeping them face down. For 5-6 players, 15 letters are taken. For 7-8 (or more) players, 11 letters are taken.
  • NOW THE GAME BEGINS!!! Any one player says "SPLIT" whereupon all players turn their own tiles face up and proceed to form their OWN collection of connecting and intersecting words. The words may be horizontal or vertical, reading left to right or top to bottom. Each player may rearrange his/her own words as often as desired. Players DO NOT take turns, but play independently of each other and at the same time.
  • When a player has none of his/her original letters left, that player says "PEEL" and takes a tile from the bunch. At this point ALL OF THE OTHER PLAYERS MUST ALSO TAKE A TILE FROM THE BUNCH and add it to their collection of letters.
  • At any time, and as often as desired during play, any player may return a difficult-to-use letter back to the center of the BUNCH, face down, but MUST TAKE THREE LETTERS IN RETURN. The player must declare this action to the other players by saying "DUMP". This exchange does not affect the other players.
  • Play continues until there are fewer tiles in the BUNCH than there are players. The first player with no remaining letters shouts "BANANAS" and is the winner of that hand. The other players may now inspect the winning hand for misspelled or incorrect words. Proper nouns are not acceptable. Any available dictionary may be used. If all words are acceptable, that player is the WINNER OF THAT HAND. If any word in the "winning" hand is found to be unacceptable, that player becomes the “Rotten Banana” and is OUT OF THAT HAND, and must return his/her letters, face down to the center bunch and the game now resumes for the remaining players.

    I was using them to make Christmas ornaments and I thought they were wood but they still worked for what I was using them for. They turned out really cute. Next time I will try to find the wood ones. They are of great quality and we played the games before I made them into the word ornaments.

    I first played this game in Colorado at out daughter's home and had to have it. I tried to find it locally but it was not available. Happily Fat Brain Toys had it. The game is compact and easily transported and tons of fun!

    Great game that can be played for hours. Never the same game twice, that's what keeps the interest going. This type of game like scrabble, can be played over and over. That's nice because you can master the strategy but never master the game and get bored like video games.
