How to Play:
Tiles are placed on the table face-down and shuffled. Each player gets an equal number of letter tiles (21 tiles for 2-4 players, 15 tiles for 5-6 players, and 11 tiles for 7 or more players) A pool of unused tiles stays within reach of all of the players. Someone says "Split", and everyone flips over their tiles and begins to build their own collection of words that are connected together. There is no taking turns - it's everyone for themselves! Players can rearrange their tiles however they want during the game. If a player uses all of their letter tiles, they say "Peel", at which point everyone has to take a tile from the common pool of unused letters. Anyone who wants to exchange a letter can say "Dump", and trade their unwanted tile in for three new ones.
How to Win:
When there are fewer tiles in the pool than there are players, and someone uses up all of their letters, they say "Bananas" and if all of their words are found to be legitimate, they are the winner.
