This game includes 144 letter tiles of the same size and shape. Players each receive the same number of letter tiles and must create their own crossword using all of their tiles and the tiles in the “bunch” before the other players. Players will shout “peel” and “dump” when they are out of tiles or need a swap. This game promotes word recognition and pre-literacy skills while inspiring laughter and socialization.
Bananagrams is the creation of three generations of the Nathanson family, spanning in age from 7 – 75 years. Some of us live in the and some in the U.K., but we are fortunate enough to meet every summer by the sea, at our home on the east coast of America.
Abe Nathanson, our father, grandfather and friend loved his family. He also loved wit, wordplay and silliness but most of all, he loved to see people having fun. Without a doubt, Abe was the driving force behind Bananagrams and his energy and enthusiasm saw the germ of an idea grow to become an international phenomenon.
The original Bananagrams game grew from a passionate love of games. As a family, we loved to play almost any word game that we could find, but they all had their flaws and we hankered after something a bit faster and more fluid.
