Appletters - The New Domino Word Game!

Updated on April 22, 2013

Appletters - The New Game From The Makers of Bananagrams!

Do you enjoy word games like Scrabble and Bananagrams, or are you constantly playing Words With Friends on your phone? Fans of word games will love the new game from the makers of Bananagrams - Appletters!

Appletters is, like Bananagrams, a domino game featuring word tiles. Players connect letters to win points and beat their opponents! This game builds vocabulary skills, memory skills, and agility skills. Anyone who can build words with letters can play, making this a great game for families with kids and seniors alike. Appletters is actually three games in one - read below for rules and how to play.

How To Play Appletters

There are three games you can play with Appletters -

Appleletters: Players alternately add tiles to the first or last letter of a word in the middle of the table creating a continuous snake of new words. For two to six players, ages 5 and up.

Apple Turnover: Similar to Appleletters, however each player begins with 21 tiles instead of nine, and may actually replace an opponent's word with a longer word. The goal is to be the first player to get rid of tiles. For two to four players, ages 7 and up.

Applescore: Players build words as long as possible in crossword-like fashion and get bonus points for length, palindromes and going out first. For two to four players, ages 7 and up.

Who Should Play Appletters?

One of the great things about Appletters is that because it involves just letters of the alphabet and your own brain, it adjusts to the skills of the players - young children with more limited vocabularies can play against each other and be perfectly happy, and older adults and wordsmiths can also play against each other and also be challenged.

Some of the groups that can benefit from the brain-building exercise of a game of Appletters include - schoolchildren in classrooms and libraries, senior citizens in retirement communities, brain injured patients in rehab facilities, and anyone who wants to have some fun!
