Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not loving it as a 2 player game I bought this for myself and my 10 year old to take camping. I love the compactness and portability. Not great for using on the go, but great for taking to your destination. The problem is, the versions that come in the instructions is looong. Like really time consuming and not great fun for myself with my child. I do think it is very adaptable and might google some more variations to see what else sounds like not-dragged-out fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Adaptable Game No game is ever the same as the last! Great game for teenagers/young adults/older adults. I've played with my younger cousins, my older cousins, my friends, my grandma. Everyone appreciates the simple rules, the speed, and the quick thinking aspects. If we are playing more than 3 or 4 rounds, I like to apply "house rules" and make the game a bit harder by enforcing a "theme." For example: all the words must relate to animals. Anything goes for the theme as long as the player can justify it. Like "banana" could be played because monkeys love to eat them, even though banana itself is not an animal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fun One of my friends introduced this to me a couple of years ago, and I couldn't wait to buy my own. Once I did, I introduced it to other friends, and we couldn't stop playing. Highly recommend as it can be played anywhere and with anyone.

It's a favourite all around - I've played with family and friends, aged 12 and older (up to 50+ years!) and everyone loves it! Good for all ages, easy to learn, fun to play, and it's quick!

Date published: 2017-01-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! Everyone works on their own board and races to finish first. No counting points at the end, first one done when all the tiles are taken wins, but sometimes when you take a tile you'll have to rearrange your entire board to find a spot for it! Super easy to learn and comes in a nice portable (banana shaped) bag. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My husband and I love this game. I am a big Scrabble fan but he hates it and does not enjoy playing it with me. He does, however really like Bananagrams. I still get my word game and he gets a faster moving game. It's nice because it can be played with several different skill levels at once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best One of my favourite word games and an amazing time-killer or travel game. It's addicting. And it can get wildly competitive sometimes, especially when you have English majors in the family. The product quality is great. It also makes a fabulous gift for most people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary! This game is fantastic! It's always my turn! We needed a Scrabble Dictionary with it to settle disputes, but my whole family has played and it's a regular thing now! Even Grandma loves it! I would recommend this game to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun! This is a great game and much less restrictive than Scrabble as you play on your own words and rearrange them at any time. The kids need a little help making words but it's all part of learning. This game can be played in a short period so it's great for kids. Adults find it challenging enough and fun too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "A Keeper" Great game. If you enjoy scrabble you will love this game. Can be used alone or with a crowd. A quick game to play and also a great spelling tool as well. Loads of fun for everyone!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Simple, yet so much fun As part of a "wordy" kind of family this game really let you play with words in a new way. Less restrictive and faster than Scrabble, it is portable ( found its way into my diaper bag ) and can be easily played with amongst people of many age groups as the winner is not defined by most words, or longest word, but by the first person who is out of tiles. Additionally, when the game is over you can also have many winners, most words, longest word, most 2 letter words, word with most vowels, word with most consonants, etc. I have played with my 8yr old son and my Mom at the same time and all of us had a good time. I looked at this game for a long time before buying, now it will be a birthday gift staple. Brilliant, just brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Word Game This is the best of them all; it's quicker and more portable than Scrabble and not as noisy as Boggle - and it's a LOT of fun. There is only one problem with it - it's addictive.
Date published: 2009-09-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like a quick, Crossword Scrabble Faster than Scrabble, but built on the same idea, players take turns making words in a cross-word like fashion, and game play progresses quickly - more importantly, the complexity is up to the individual player - getting the tiles down doesn't have to be a complex map like in a Scrabble game. An easy to carry yellow banana-tote makes the game quite portable, and the lack of a board means any table-top can be a game surface. Definitely a fun - and quick! - game for word-nuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dangerous???? Unless your son can throw a small wood tile 96 miles per hour, I doubt he was able to cause the occurrence of scar tissue or even break the skin. I think you're making stuff up because of some other weird reason.
Date published: 2009-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun! I used this game within a Gr 5-6-7 classroom and the students loved it! There were no tiles being thrown and instead they worked together to create words, it assisted in their spelling and using a dictionary to check if something was a word. Definitely something that I would use again in a classroom. This is also a game that I love to play with friends, and can easily be taken anywhere!
