When you’re out to eat with the family, it’s extremely tempting to pull out (or keep out) that cell phone. You can check your email, see who’s doing something interesting on any social media network, or hand it to the kids to keep them occupied. However, it kinda defeats the purpose of eating out as a family.
One fun thing you can do to pass the time is play a game, and Zip It from Bananagrams is a very small, very portable, and very fun way to enjoy each other’s company on the go.
The pouch, only 5 inches long, contains 24 cubes with letters on all sides. Each player gets 12 cubes and when someone says, “Go!” they race to build words in a crossword-style formation using any letters on the cubes. The first to use up his or her 12 cubes yells “Zip!” and ends the round. Provided they didn’t use any illegal (or nonexistent) words or had misspellings, the winner can notch a point, via the zipper, on their side of the carrying case. The first to 10 points wins.
