Bananagrams is a variation on the word game Scrabble, where users must compete against other players to create valid crossword boards in real-time, and adjust their boards as they receive new tiles.
Using React, socket.io, and React DnD, Wade created Plantaingrams, an online version of Bananagrams, where users can join specific rooms and play against their friends. Plantaingrams features the standard Bananagrams functionality, including 'peeling', 'dumping', and claiming victory. Plantaingrams also incorporates word validation to ensure that any 'peel' declared by a user is valid per the SOWPODS Scrabble dictionary.
