Amazon UK celebrates 15th birthday with list of best-selling games

Rubix's Cube, Monopoly and Scrabble all make an appearance, but there's some unexpected items as well

As part of the celebrations for its 15th birthday Amazon.co.uk has released a list of its best-selling games.

“At a time when interactive and electronic toys are becoming more advanced, our best-sellers chart shows that traditional family favourites still have a place in Britain’s toy boxes," said Victoria Nelson, manager of Amazon Toys.

However, not all the items on the list are stalwarts of the genre, with the number one spot taken by Banangrams, a fast-paced version of Scrabble that suggests invented in 2006.
