10 Minute Banana-Grams!

10-Minute Banana-Grams! is an anagram game based on the bestselling game Bananagrams! Befuddle and challenge your brain as your mix and match letters to fill in the blanks of these great word challenges!
Warning: this is a very addictive book! Do NOT start playing in pen- you WILL need a pencil to erase, and erase, and erase again!
10-Minute Banana-Grams has 560 puzzles total, with 10 different variety of puzzles. And it only costs $8.95 too for hours and hours of fun! (and frustration!) They even make a Bananagrams for Kids! book too!
Take the letters highlighted by the tiles, and mix & match them in the blank spaces provided till you form the correct words! It’s really quite maddening, and fun all at once!! This is a great way to keep your brain active and challenge your intellect and vocabulary. Not to mention you can stump your spouse or kids too! For those of us who are driven nuts if we don’t know the answers, there are cheat sheets in the back of the book!
I really enjoyed playing 10-minute Bananagrams! It was very challenging for me as I do not usually do word puzzles, but there were many of them that were not hard at all! Some of them were terrifying though! It was fun for hubby & I to “race” each other to get a page done! I LOVE that I can just pick up the book, do a puzzle or two while the kids are running around, or while sitting in the car on the way somewhere, and then be finished. It’s a perfect size to be handy to throw in my purse, or in the kids bag. It is the perfect size for this book to be very handy! The book also has quirky facts about bananas in it that were fun to read!

Did you know that banana peels can be used to polish shoes and kill warts??
