“BEST OF…” A hand can take as little as 5 minutes, so players, if desired, could play for the “best of five” or “the best of ten”.
BANANA SMOOTHIE (For those who want to play a less hectic game) All tiles are placed face down on the table The letters are divided equally among the players, remaining face down. Players then play the regular BANANAGRAMS game, but there is no "peeling" or "dumping". The first player to use all his/her letters shouts "BANANAS" and is the winner of the hand. If the game ends in a stalemate, the player with the fewest remaining letters is the winner.
BANANA CAFÉ (Play in restaurants while waiting for service) The BANANAGRAMS pouch is placed on the table. Each player takes 21 tiles from the pouch. Players then proceed to play the regular game with “dumping” but NO “peeling”. The first player to use all his/her letters says “BANANAS!!!” and is the winner.
BANANA SOLITAIRE (One player) Place all letters down on center of table. Take 21 letters and proceed to play the game. Only peel when needed. Try to beat your own best time in using all 144 letters, or try making as few words to use all 144 letters. This can be a relaxing way of honing your Bananagrams skills.
BANANA CHALLENGE Play the regular Bananagrams rules but words must be three letters or longer. NO two letter words. Advanced players could create their own special game by limiting the acceptable words to a specific category such as animals, food & drink, etc.
