Fun On Friday #100: Bananagrams

I have recently become obsessed with a word game called Bananagrams - a game that is described as: the anagram game that will drive you bananas! I had never heard of this game until I was given it as a birthday present but am now a full convert.

Essentially, you get a bunch of Scrabble like tiles in a bag (a bag in the shape of a banana!) You have to form the tiles into crossword style combinations. However, unlike Scrabble, everyone plays simultaneously. There is no hanging about waiting for your turn and each hand is completed reasonably quickly. Also there is no scoring, so no need for paper and pencil. And a final endorsement is that our youngest daughter and compete successfully with her English Teacher mother, so while an extensive vocabulary is probably an advantage, it does not on its own guarantee success. Instructions on how to play can be found on the official Bananagrams site.

Normally, the Fun On Friday post links to an online resource, so you may be wondering why I'm featuring a board game here? (Well perhaps more accurately a table top game!). It features because, it is available as an online game in Facebook, Bebo and Myspace as well as a download for the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad.

If you don't already have a facebook account, signup now and look for this game - it really is that good!
