10-Minute Bananagrams Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
The last time we went to visit my sister and brother-in-law, my brother-in-law introduced us to the game Bananagrams. It's a really neat word game, similar to Scrabble but without the board, and I beat my poor brother-in-law every time. :-) The company that makes Bananagrams also makes Appletters and PAIRSinPEARS, two other word games. They recently published a book called 10-Minute Bananagrams which is full of anagram word games. My father would have LOVED this book! He always enjoyed doing the jumble in the newspaper every day, so this would have kept him busy for weeks.
My Take
I love doing all types of word problems, but I'm not nearly as good at anagrams as my father was. The 10-Minute Bananagrams book has 560 anagram puzzles that could keep me busy for months. Each puzzle is relatively quick (depending on how well you figure out anagrams) and there are so many different varieties! I did very well finding pairs of words which were similar except for one letter, and I also enjoyed the puzzle where you had to unscramble the letters given into words that had certain beginning letters or ending letters. Other puzzles stumped me completely! There are puzzles for all skill levels and are great for killing time when you would otherwise be bored (think doctor waiting rooms or the DMV). This is a fantastic book for the puzzle-lover in your life, and I'm thinking maybe I should get this for my brother-in-law for his birthday. (But shhh, don't tell him!)

Do you want to try some puzzles for yourself? Click here for a few downloadable sheets for you to enjoy! They also have a Bananagrams Facebook application as well as an iPhone app for some online and on-the-go fun.

Cost: You can buy 10-Minute Bananagrams on Amazon.com for $8.95. ($$$)

Overall: We give 10-Minute Bananagrams a 9.5/10!
