One of my roommates introduced me to this game at college and pretty soon our whole house was addicted! :) I brought it home for Thanksgiving and broke it out as an after-the-turkey game and everyone from my 87 year old grandma to my 13 year old cousin loved it! great fast-paced game for kids of all ages (educational too :)
Bananagrams is a great, after dinner game--just clear the table, dump out the tiles and start playing--start to finish, every game moves quickly. An excellent choice for people who have friends or relatives who are annoyingly competitive Scrabble players--there are NO triple letter or word scores for them to hog.
