My First Bananagrams
Now there is a Bananagrams Game for the younger crowd. This set comes in a green canvas banana pouch that zips shut. There are 80 letter tiles, 13 combination letter tiles, and instruction sheet. Letter tiles have a nice feel to them, the right weight, raised lowercase letters, and a raised baseline so children know which is the bottom. Letters are white on a colored background, vowels are yellow, and letters that are similar (b/d, p/q, m/w) are in different colors to prevent confusion. Combination letter tiles are vowel teams (yellow), word families (vowel in yellow, consonant in blue or red), and digraphs (red). To play the game (1-4 players): 1) Lay all the letter tiles facedown in the center of the table; 2) All players take 15 single-letter tiles; 3) Everyone turns their tiles faceup and races to arrange them in their own word grid; 4) The first one to use all their tiles wins. The tiles can be used to play other games with younger learners - spell your name, abc's in order, letter match, and more. "Peel" your banana and get started with some "Bananalicious" letter fun! 1CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.
My First BANANAGRAMS utilizes lowercase letters and word-building, combo-letter tiles to help nurture your child's love for wordplay and word games. With multiple activites and mini games, they'll enjoy a play-progression towards our original BANANAGRAMS experience!
This banana includes:
* 80 single tiles
* 13 combo-letter tiles
You're playing Scrabble with three friends. You love the game but you hate the long delays between your turns. You can only spend so much time planning your next move, as someone invariably messes up your plans. What can you do? Bananagrams! In this Scrabble-like game, you compete against up to 7 other players, but your tiles, played and unplayed, are always under your control. In essence, you have your own flexible game of Scrabble going on, and so do your opponents. Start with your tiles, turn them over, and start making connecting and intersecting words. All letters are the same point value, and you can rearrange your words at any time. When any player has played all his letters, he takes a new tile from the Bunch, as do all the other players. If a player cannot play a letter, he can put the tile back and draw three other tiles. Play continues until there are fewer tiles in the Bunch than there are players. The first player to play all his tiles is the winner of that round (if all his words are correct). Rounds typically take around ten minutes, but can be as little as five, so games can consist of as many rounds as you decide. Variations of the game are also possible, even a solitaire game.
