As recommended on here!

Any idea where I can get this cheapest? Prices seems to be around £25.

I'm also interested after seeing it mentioned on here (if I had a product to sell, I'd totally seed it on Mumsnet).

Is there any downside to getting the cheaper 'pocket' edition?

I also see there's add-on pieces available. Are these necessary/do they enhance the game much? I guess they're not compatible with the pocket edition?

The add on pieces aren't necessary. They enhance the game when you've been playing for a while and have got used to each other's tactics, but the game is perfectly good without them.

The only disadvantage of the pocket edition is that the pieces aren't so pleasingly tactile. The game play is the same.

Thank you, Stompy. Hmmm, I may have to go for the full size version. 'Pleasingly tactile' shouldn't really be such an issue, but I don't think I'd enjoy bananagrams half as much if the tiles weren't so nicely clicky-clacky.
