You just ripped off a simple and addictive Bananagram game! Find out who will be the fastest to assemble a crossword puzzle from their letters. There are no pens, paper or margins. And do not wait for other players - only speed and fun in a small handbag.

"Bananagrams" - a game to compose not just words, but whole crosswords from chips with letters. It is compact (you can put it in a briefcase or purse), soft, not scary to drop, and its rules are quite simple. For gamers like Scrabble or Scrabble, guys who like folding or guessing games are a great gift.

Preparing for the game:

1. Place all 144 of the chips in the kit on the table with the letters side down. Get a bunch.

2. Each player takes a starting set of chips depending on the number of players.

Purpose of the game:

Be the first to crossword using all your chips.

Game progress:

To start the game, any of the players shouts: “Let's go!”. After that, expand your chips with the letters up and start making them your own crossword puzzle from intersecting words. You can compose words from letters arranged from left to right horizontally or from top to bottom vertically. You can redo your words during the game. In the game, everyone acts simultaneously, and each player plays independently and independently of other players, composing his own crossword puzzle.

When you put the last chip, you must say to the other players the word “I bite!” And take the chip from the pile. At this point, all other players must also take a chip from the pile. Then continue to compose your crossword puzzle.

At any time, as necessary, you can return an inappropriate letter to the center of the heap by placing a chip with the letter face down. However, you must take the other three chips in return. You must warn everyone about your action by saying, “Tearing it off!” This exchange does not affect other players.

End of the game

The game continues until there are fewer chips left in the heap than the number of players. The first player who runs out of chips tells the other players about it, shouting: "Bananas!" This player becomes a winner if all his words are composed correctly. Other players may check his crossword puzzle for errors or discover incorrect words.

Only common nouns that can be found in the dictionary are suitable. Toponyms and other proper names are not suitable. If the players find a mistake, for example, the word is not correctly composed, the player becomes a “rotten banana” and remains out of the game until the end of the game. In this case, the player who has become a "rotten banana" puts his chips back in a pile, and the game continues for the remaining players.

Rule Options:

"The best of ..."

Bananagrams are a fun and very fast game, sometimes a game can end in less than 5 minutes. If you want to find out who the fastest banana is, play several games in a row according to the basic rules. Anyone who wins more from, for example, three games, becomes the champion.

"Banana cocktail" for those who have nowhere to rush:

1. Put all the chips face down in the center of the table.

2. Without turning over the chips, divide them equally among all players.

3. After that, the players play the standard Bananagrams, however you cannot “tear” or “bite” the chips.

4. The first player who runs out of chips reports this to other players, shouting: "Bananas!" This player is the winner. If the game comes to a standstill and none of the players can use their chips anymore, then the winner is the player who has the longest word in his crossword puzzle. If there are several players with equally long words, play again.

Seven bananas

The Twitch user, under the pseudonym ATwerkinYoshi, decided to do a pretty original Super Smash Bros. stream. Ultimate, where he used seven bananas as a controller. An enthusiast used the MaKey MaKey device, developed by two MIT students, to realize his venture. It turns into touch buttons any objects that conduct at least a little electric current. The streamer connected this bunch to the input converter so that the game recognizes the interaction with bananas as pressing the Nintendo Switch Pro controller.

ATwerkinYoshi decided to test his miracle device in the network mode, choosing Donkey Kong as a fighter. The player admitted that before the start of the stream he believed that his plan would turn into something terrible. But in the end, he managed to make it work, and he was even able to win several victories.

Potato management

In early June 2016, a YouTube user under the pseudonym BOOM, LLC Robotater published a video on Skyrim. It differed from other similar video content in that the gamer for several minutes controlled the main character using ordinary potatoes. Like the previous hero of our material, BOOM, LLC Robotater also took advantage of MaKey MaKey.

In addition, on Steam, he published detailed instructions on how to make a potato controller, consisting of 13 parts, where seven of them will act as keys on the keyboard, and the rest will simulate mouse movements and clicks.

Microwave and dance mat

Rudeism (aka Dylan) is a popular streamer from New Zealand, known for playing games incorrectly. For example, Rudeism devoted one of his live broadcasts to the multiplayer battles in Overwatch, where he made the controller a microwave.

In another video, the streamer decided to test his strength in Dark Souls 3 using a regular dance mat. He even managed to defeat the first boss in the game, but this, according to Rudeism, took about 30 attempts.

Here again, it is worth mentioning a colleague of Dylan ATwerkinYoshi, who, using the same controller, completely completed the third part of the role-playing action in almost two days. In total, the streamer died more than 300 times.
