More On Bananagrams
I mentioned the game - Bananagrams - a few weeks ago...
But since then I've had the chance to play in a multi-player format.
And I'm glad to report that the game is a definite winner. It's even more fun playing with several participants.
Although the game is inherently competitive, I think it best when egos are holstered.
And you might not want any *professional Scrabble players* there - as they can be party poopers.
They are always trying to use so-called Scrabble words, *words* that are never used anywhere else, either colloquially, or in books less than 100 years old.
I'm perfectly aware that "ja" is in fact found in the Scrabble dictionary....BUT I won't use it in the spirit of gamesmanship.
And I definitely won't let anyone use a word they can't define on-demand!
In addition to the Scrabble killjoys....within each game will always manifest at least one person who repeatedly lapses into potty-mouthed slang.
Buy the game, you'll get way more than your $15 worth. It's a great low-budget, green (!) activity for the Greater Depression doldrums!
