In Bananagrams you have to "dump" the tiles you can't use to pick up letters to make your word. So Zip It eliminates that problem. With just twelve cubes, I was able to create more than a hundred words...and this was from playing Zip It in solitaire mode by myself.
Not only that but the lettering on the cubes are much clearer to see than the tiles on Banangrams. You can really see the letters which are larger and more attractive to look at. The quality of the cubes used for this game is excellent. Very high quality went into this product and it shows.
Overall I'm very impressed. The only drawback to this game is there are only 24 cubes. You really do need to pick up at least two or more sets to get going. My advice to prospective buyers...you won't regret this purchase. But don't buy one set. Buy two.
There is one final thought about Zip It. I think they should reclassify it as a solitaire game. Yes, two people can play with one set but 24 cubes to play this game is too small a set to justify calling it a two player game. So my final analysis suggests this is more a one person game than a two player game. There is another reason I say this...and that's because it's easier to switch around the cubes to find different words than Bananagrams because of the cube design in Zip It.
But it also justifies using Zip It more along the lines of a solitaire variation of Zip It than for two players. You can't "peel" or "dump" cubes with only 24 total cubes...especially if two players are at it with 12 cubes each. So my advice still stands...get the game but buy two or more sets.
The game is simple, quick, challenging, enjoyable to play with another player or even alone. You'll strive to develop little strategies to work faster. Small enough to store in a purse or glove compartment, Zip-It can be played almost anywhere. I highly recommend the fun!
Do you really need both?
I think Zip It! is wonderful for one on one play between adult and child or children or adults. Zip It! is probably better for kids who are still developing their spelling and vocabulary. Bananagrams excellent for group play. So you decide your needs.
BTW our toddler loves getting out Zip It! and we discuss the letters, roll them like dice and shout out the letters. We spell her name with the cubes.
I'm going to buy another set so up to four can play too.
