Name Bananagrams
Players 1 – Many
Play Time 10 minutes
Game Style Making Words

This seems like a theme to end the week. Like these last two posts, this one is all about the words. Like a free form scrabble, Bananagrams has you scrambling for words, and adding letters all the time. The game finishes when someone has a completed board, and there are less tiles than players in the centre. It is fun, fast paced, and great for all ages.
