Find your wordy rival and get ready to play the two-player word game that you can take anywhere!
Each player takes 12 letter cubes. Place the banana cards face down within reach of both players. Banana cards are used as score cards and /or theme cards.
CLASSIC DUEL Each time a player wins a round, they’re awarded one banana card. First to 10 cards wins! In this game you will only use the banana cards to keep score. Ignore the categories on the cards.
To start the game, any player calls out “Go!”. Simultaneously, players race to form their own crossword grid using any side of their 12 letter cubes.
Words must read horizontally or vertically, left to right or top to bottom. All words must connect or intersect to form one unified word grid. Grids can be rearranged at anytime.
The first player to complete a word grid with all 12 cubes calls “Bananas!” and is rewarded one banana card. At the end of each round, mix all letter cubes together, and redistribute 12 cubes to each player.
The first player to win 10 rounds and collect 10 banana cards wins!
THEMED GAME Set-up and play classic DUEL, but before each round begins, flip over one banana card to reveal a theme. To win the round, the first complete grid must now contain at least one word that satisfies the rounds theme. Each time a player wins a themed round, they are awarded that banana card. The first player to collect ten cards wins the game!
