...Bananagrams is popular with Hasidic Jews because they are unable to use numbers on the Sabbath. Since the game only utilizes letters, they can play without violating the Sabbath.The article goes on to say that electronic versions of Bananagrams are in the works for the Wii, the Playstation, and "Gamebox" (which I am taking to be a mistaken transcription of either Game Boy or Xbox).
I'm very curious to see what the Wii interface for Bananagrams will be like.
UPDATE: French, Norwegian, German, and Italian Bananagrams are now available in their respective countries.
And (at last) you can buy the French version of Bananagrams through Amazon in the U.S.!:
I just learned that the Norwegian edition of Bananagrams has a product page on Amazon. But sadly, it is listed as "currently unavailable". Apparently, the additional Norwegian letters are Æ, Ø and Å.
And Hebrew Bananagrams is now available, too.
