Each player trades with beans which he has grown in his fields and then sells them as profitably as possible. The more beans of the same variety the player has in his field, the greater the profit accrued by selling. Unfortunately a player is often forced to sell his beans much too early at a bargain basement price, and sometimes there is nothing at all to harvest. The aim of the game is to earn the greatest amount through bean trading.
Last year's winner is no has-bean. Use your bean to become the richest bean farmer by planting and eventually selling eight different kinds found in the deck, in unequal quantities. Prices depend on the types and amounts sold. You may plant one or two types of beans per turn, after which the top two cards of the draw are turned and may be added to your fields if they are the right kind. However, you can only invest in two types until you make enough money for a third, so cards you cannot use are auctioned off. If they are especially valuable to an opponent, you might want to sell your investments at a loss to start a new crop. Trading is permitted with the player whose turn it currently is. All said, it's bean a bumper year.
