On New Year's Eve, my husband and I went to a friend's house to enjoy a nice, relaxing evening munching on snacks and drinking in moderation~~~except for Robin who had a "few" White Russians! The men, of course, sat in the family room watching a football game (I, too, love a good football game) while the ladies sat in the kitchen snacking and chatting. Suzanne, the hostess, asked us if we wanted to play a new game that her sister-in-law gave her while visiting from Tennessee at Thanksgiving. Robin, Suzanne, Joanne and I played a few rounds of Bananagrams and I was hooked. I LOVE THIS GAME! A few of the guys strolled into the kitchen and played a round or two and then all 8 of us switched to a new game, Cranium. We had a ball playing Cranium, but my mind was on Bananagrams. After we finished playing Cranium, I pulled out the "banana" that held all the tiles for the game and Griff and Brian decided to play too. Griff was a whiz at this game but I was a good match for him. He won every round but I came in a close second while Brian trailed along. At midnight, I was the only one at the table still flipping tiles trying to make words so I could yell "Bananas"! The game requires at least 2 players, but I didn't care because I loved the challenge of making words with my limited tiles. I looked online to see where I could buy this game and I found out that the game is available at Barnes and Noble....guess where I will be tomorrow?
