Holiday Giveaways # 14 – Bananagrams
I’m not much of a banana person. I don’t like bananas au natural. I don’t like banana bread – not even when my friend Dustin makes it, though it is reportedly amazing. I don’t like banana in my smoothies. I don’t like slices of banana in my cereal. Elvis’s preferred combination of peanut butter and bananas is particularly unappetizing, since the only thing I like less than bananas is peanut butter. I don’t even like letting my children eat bananas, but I suck it up in the name of potassium. All of this notwithstanding, I do love Bananagrams.
It comes in a banana-shaped bag, but I’m willing to overlook that because the game inside is so much fun. It has become the game of choice for my parents and siblings during family gatherings and vacations. It can entertain a group of adults for hours, and it’s also fun for children and groups of mixed ages. The best part about Bananagrams is that it’s an individual challenge and the action never stops. There’s no waiting for your turn or mulling over which letters will give you the highest point value. There’s no bonus for big words – just use those letters and use them fast. It’s like mental calisthenics – I feel smarter every time I play this game. I also appreciate that it’s not the sort of game that invites unsportsmanlike behavior. You might get terrible letters, but that just makes the game more interesting. It’s the sort of game where it really doesn’t matter if you win or lose because you’re so busy having fun playing the game.
We’re giving away a Bananagrams game. Enter to win.
