Bananagrams is a multiplayer anagram word game that uses tiles with letters. Each player constructs their own freeform group of words at the same time, drawing or exchanging tiles as needed until someone has used all of their tiles. That person wins the round, which can take as little as five minutes to play.

The Nathanson family loves word games, and came up with this fun game during a summer holiday when they were looking for something that was easy, quick and addictive to play. The tiles come in a yellow banana pouch. There is no board or point counting, making it really easy to travel with or throw in your bag.

Bananagrams is available direct, from retailers listed on their site, and at
