If your family enjoys playing word games, you will love Jabuka ― it’s a fast-tracked version of Scrabble, and similar to Bananagrams but with a few more twists. And, it’s a whole lot of fun!
Invented by Toronto-native, and architectural designer and artist Martin Russocki, Jabuka is a really cool new Canadian, brain-boosting and award-winning word game. Here's the twist: game letters on coffee bean-shaped pieces transform into other letters. Twist a 'u' and it can become an 'n' or a 'c'! And to make things even more exciting, combination letters are added to the mix. Take 'pu' and flip it to transform into 'nd,' or 'bo' is now 'og'… get the picture? Then, there are letters you can't twist!
The family-friendly game encourages fun, competitive gameplay, word-building and quick thinking. It's easy to play and rounds go fairly quickly. There’s no waiting for your turn ― everyone plays at once, racing to make, reinvent and steal words. Add, rearrange and twist letters in ways you've never seen before. The player or team who uses the most beans wins!
The game is made of recycled wood and comes in a small, lightweight bag that's transportable so you can play just about anywhere.
Ditch the electronics and make it an entertaining game night. This fun and educational game is a great way to increase word power and helps with spelling, rapid letter recognition, memory and building vocabulary.
Add it to your family's holiday wish list!
