# Bananagrams...

## Recommended Posts

Thinking of this for a Christmas gift. What size for a family of four with younger teens?

They have the original and jumbo sizes.

We've only played the original, so I'm not sure what the difference between them is, but we've played with as many as seven adults with no problem. There are a lot of tiles in that banana!

I was just looking at this in a catalogue last night. So, if I am understanding you, one "banana" is enough for several people to play the game? Right? From the description I thought everyone might need their own "banana".

Yup, you just need one banana. Each player gets a certain number of tiles to start the game, and this number changes depending upon how many people are currently playing. So if you're playing with two people, they each get a large number of tiles, but if you've got eight people playing, each gets a smaller group of tiles.

The game does play a bit differently with a large group, because there's a lot more going on with that many people and each round tends to be shorter, but it's fun with any number!

The letter tiles are also a lot of fun for the kids to play with on their own. My eight year old uses them in several of his made-up games, and I've used them for spelling games with both boys.

We love Bananagrams! :tongue_smilie:

Thank You! It's now on my list. We love new games!

We have one Banana and really enjoy the game.

Mind, I'm of the opinion that you need another banana if you are going to have more than 6 people... but that's just my opinion LOL.

Hm, when four of us play, we've sometimes wished we had an additional banana's worth. One is *enough* for four, but barely. The times when we've had five or more play, we've really very much wished we had twice as many tiles.

It's a great game though!

We routinely play with six people and the original, not jumbo, Bananagrams. It's a big hit here.
