Product Description

Bohnanza goes to the seas! The addition of new bean types and ships brings variety and tactics to the game. Trading vessels are used to create foreign ports and transport valuable bean harvests. Unfortunately, the business of the bean dealer becomes more dangerous. On the high seas, pirates lie in wait to capture the trading vessels.

"La Isla Bohnita" requires the Bohnanza basic set. For 6 or 7 players, the Bohnanza expansion set is also needed.

A load of old bohns
November 07, 1999

You can daydream a lot during a game of La Isla Bohnita. My turn had gone and so I could re-live the days where a simple 45 minute game of Bohnanza meant furious trading and tough bargaining for just one fire bean. You always had to take an active interest in everyones turn or youd miss that vital trade. Players in La Isla Bohnita, however, turn into card collectors with all the greed of a Magic: The Gathering devotee. Trade ships, pirate ships and third fields mean the hoarding of beans from La Isla Bohnita is much more attractive than trading with other players. While daydreaming is fine, I resent the extra hour tacked onto this game which in no way increases the skill level of original.

 
 
 
 
 
Makes the game take rather long
March 07, 1999

I am in the category of folks who would buy an Uwe Rosenberg game sight unseen. So far, only twice have I been unhappy with the outcome, and this is one case.

La Isla Bohnita comes with some new beans, trade and pirate ships for 7 players, and the Isle of Beans cards. (To play with 7 players, you need expansion #1 as well.)

The big difference in this game is that you can pick up new bean types on the Isle of Beans. These are not placed in your fields, but may be sold along with beans from your fields. The tricky thing is, you only can put one type of bean on a ship.

The isle of beans has 2 queues of beans from which you may take the extra bean types.

You may also spend your hard earned gold on extra trade ships, and pirate ships. The pirate ships can steal beans from trade ships on your turn.

What this does to the game is to open up lots and lots of options. People no longer need to trade as often, and spend more time plotting their turns. This doubles (or triples, depending on the players) the time that the game requires.
