Fun, fast word game. It's miles better than Scrabble...and it comes in a banana bag!

In my youth I and my friends played Letra-Mix to death, and it never occurred to us that the only three gripes we had was the long idle-time for the other players when one player had to build a crossword puzzle within two minutes or so, the point calculation, and the fact that sometimes you simply could not do anything good with the letters you were given.
Bananagrams takes the basic idea of this game, simplifies it, eliminates all the above issues and creates the (for me) best word tile laying game ever. I will throw away all others I have, I think ...

Just love it - everything that Scrabble should be but isn't. Plays in about 10 minutes.

I've always enjoyed Scrabble, yet the tile management, tile placement, and scoring strategies elude a lot of would be players. Bananagrams retains all of the word sorting fun, awards players for fast word creation, and never relegates a player to certain defeat.

Speed Scrabble! Who can place all their letters first and complete their personal Scrabble structure? This game CAN be discouraging for people who are bad at Scrabble-type games, but I find it does an admirable job of leveling the playing field between masters and casual players. You have to think fast and move fast, and flexibility is a must.

It's not a good feeling when someone makes you pick up five letters in a row, so that you're swimming in unplaced consonants, but then that person might pull an X, get stuck, and lose to someone else entirely. And you might win next game. Each one only takes a few minutes, so why not play a bunch of times?

Sudo scrabble game. I love it! It supports 1-8 players, but, in my opinion, it's best with 2 players.

Let me preface this by saying, I'm a sucker for word games. There is no time of day I won't jump at the chance to play this game. It's like a quick brain warm up when you're feeling slow. I'm certain my husband wishes it would rot into non-existence, just like a real banana (but woo! it won't)

Awesome, awesome, awesome! We changed it so we only played until the first to empty their hand was the winner. This made it much faster and competitive. Great game; Scrabble on speed! Must have for a family game.

The default game at the park/coffeehouse. Both relaxing and tense - it's satisfying rearranging your puzzle to accommodate new letters, but the race factor adds excitement.

Fun an very quick game. Great game to play any time you have one or more friends around and are waiting for others to show up. Also handy for passing the time while waiting in an airport since it does not require an excessive amount of space to play and packs up VERY quickly and compactly.

Excellent. So easy to pull out and start playing. And easy to handicap; someone who is better at word games in general should just silently set themself the additional challenge of only using words of length 3+, or 4+.

For 2-3 players, I also recommend Rootword as a richer but still easy-to-introduce word game.

This is an EXCELLENT scrabble variant. It is mysteriously fun to play and easy to learn. Cannot possibly count the number of times we've played it (ignore my plays count).

A huge crowd pleaser. The game is rough around the edges, but you can't beat this as a filler. Works for both gamers and non-gamers.
