There are 75 letter tiles for single player games and 144 letter tiles for multiplayer games.
In multiplayer games, each player begins with the same number of tiles.
Drag and drop tiles onto the game board to form words. Properly formed words will highlight in green. Once all of your tiles have been used to form valid words in a contiguous manner on the game board, you will hear an audible "PEEL" and another tile will be distributed to each player in the game.
You may get rid of a tile by dragging it over the "DUMP" section of your tile bank. Your tile will be returned to the pool and you will be given three tiles in return.
A winner is declared when there are not enough tiles to be given out and the winning player has formed valid words with all of their tiles.
Shuffle the tiles in your bank by clicking on the Bananagrams! text at the top-left corner.
Review the number of remaining tiles in the game at the bottom left the page. As the game nears the end, the audible "PEEL" will speed up.
Keep track of how you are doing against your competitors in the left panel. The total tiles they have not formed into words is represented as "Tile Count". Their total number of Peels and Dumps are tallied as well, though this doesn't impact the outcome. The left hand panel is dynamically sorted with the leader at the top, followed by the player in second position, and so on.
Select multiple tiles that are in play to drag at once by holding down your left mouse cursor and dragging the resulting blue rectangle over multiple tiles. Clicking again will deselect the tiles.
