bananagrams anyone?

For any of you that know me, I love games like everyone else, but I am no nut for scrabble. I hardly ever play it I am afraid. Not too long ago I discovered Boggle again and really love that. Then, one day, we played Bananagrams!! If you haven't jumped on this wagon yet, it is time to get going quickly. It is so addicting, fast paced, challenging, great for teaching (you know I couldn't resist that one).
Let me know how you like it!!

What is the object of the game? We love a game called speed scrabble which uses scrabble tiles. In this game each person makes their own crossword out of the 10 tiles alloted them. The rest of the tiles are placed face down in the middle. The first person to use all their tiles in a crossword says take two (or 4 if you want to go even faster). Everyone takes two more tiles and tries to fit them into or totally redo their crosswords. You continue this until all the tiles are gone. We never play for a score, just for fun! (and education ;-))

It is very similar indeed. This one comes in small banana and and has a few little variations and names, but much the same!!

I like to play Scrabble with the kids. I let them use the dictionary and we have extra tiles. Anything to help with spelling!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
