What is BANANAGRAMS?
Bananagrams, Inc. is the family-owned Rhode Island company behind a range of innovative word games, including the international phenomenon BANANAGRAMS – the anagram game that drives you bananas! In the main game, players race against each other to complete word grids, and it requires no pencil, paper, or board.
Let’s see what else is available in the Bananagrams range:
1. Classic BANANAGRAMS (RRP £14.99 ages 7-107)
The one that started it all! Created by a word game-obsessed family, BANANAGRAMS is a labour of love that has quickly become an international phenomenon and firm favourite with celebrities including the cast of ITV’s Downton Abbey, Dame Judi Dench, Scarlett Johansson and many more. It’s now sold more than 7 million games worldwide!
