Do you like beans? Baked beans, soy beans, kidney beans, black-eyed beans, coffee beans and many more...
Bohnanza is a German-styled card game about trading and farming beans. Author is Uwe Rosenberg and the game was first published in 1997.
I remember I first played it 2000 with a group of five people. It is great fun! The more people play the more movement the game has.
The idea is simple. You get bean cards on your hand and can farm 2-3 types of them at the same time. Tricky: you have more bean types on your hands and are not allowed to change the order. So either you have to harvest unprofitably or trade your cards with the other players.
There are also a lot of add-ons. Al Cabohne for example is for 1-2 players. High Bohn can be played with Al Cabohne or Bohnanza, Bohnaparte and La Isla Bohnita can only be played with Bohnanza.
It's a great game but unfortunatly I always lack in people playing with me. So I hardly know the add-ons. Maybe one day I will find someone eager in playing beans! ;-)
9 out of 10 points! (for Bohnanza)
7 out of 10 points for Al Cabohne (it lacks in the fast moving of Bohnanza)
