10 Minute Bananagrams, Appleletters, Pairs in Pears – Giveaway

Words. Words. Words. We spend the day with words flying at, around and past us.  Today, if you don’t have lots of words, you simply cannot navigate the world. Or at least some of cyberspace.

I love word games, and I was recently sent copies of some Bananagrams products, including 10-Minute Bananagrams (Workman publishing, December 2010), Bananagrams! for Kids, More Bananagrams! and the first in the series, Bananagrams! The Official Book, all based on the best selling game Bananagrams.  These books will entertain you and strengthen your confidence and brain power as you let your words come out and play.

Banagrams is like Scrabble…sort of..the principle of making words with tiled letters is the same, but that’s where the similiarty ends.  Each player makes their own crossword with the tiles they have, and then proceed to pick up tiles from the “bunch” playing until the bunch is gone and one player has not tiles left.  Of course there are a few game ‘busters’ along the way, like being able to ditch a difficult letter, but in exchange you have to take three tiles for the one you get rid off!  Since there is no game board, and the tiles come in a ‘banana’ skin pouch, it’s great for travel, as it’s easily portable.

Likewise the books are filled with addictive puzzle fun, from easy to extra-hard levels, that hopefully will  “drive you bananas” trying to complete!  Crossword style, finding the common letter, extending the word, letter substitution puzzles and more are all within the pages of the Official Banagram books.  And Banagrams for kids will keep your kids busy on snow days and car trips, and they won’t even realize they’re working the brain for all the fun they’re having!

Want to see what they’re all about?  Here are some pdf’s for you to take a peek at and try out for yourself!


The Bananagrams brand has seen incredible success. Created by a word game-obsessed family of three generations, Bananagrams is a labor of love that that has quickly become an international phenomenon. There are over 3 million copies of the game in print, which has also launched in Spanish, French, Norwegian and German. In addition, the brand line has expanded with DOUBLE Bananagrams (a bigger banana for a larger bunch of 16+ players), two new word games: APPLETTERS™ and PAIRSinPEARS™, as well as Facebook and iPhone applications.

One reader will receive 10-Minute Bananagrams along with APPLETTERS™ and PAIRSinPEARS™
