Product Description

Most folk have never planned on being a bean farmer, but Bohnanza takes this crazy theme and makes it work in this enjoyable card game. Players must trade with one another to plant fields of lucrative beans, as they manipulate the cards in their hands to get the best deal. Known as one of the most fun trading games around, Bohnanza can handle up to six players and can be played in about half an hour! Humorous artwork, clever gameplay, and high interaction make Bohnanza one of the most loved games of all time.

This English language edition of the game is a combined set, equivalent to the original Bohnanza game plus the 6-7 player Bohnanza expansion (original edition).

Friend or fiend? You decide!
August 10, 2016
This is the kind of card game that draws families and friends together around a table, then lets them decide whether or not they should tear each other apart. What a riot! Bohnanza incorporates a good blend of chance and statistical knowledge with a choice of cutthroat intensity or genteel sensibility. Competitors of all types will enjoy watching their foes squirm as you decide whether to trade bean cards, donate them, or rebuff a request, knowing what goes around often comes around in this race to plant and harvest lots of beans among an ever-dwindling pile of choices. The player who plants best and collects the most gold-coin cards wins this battle of offers and counteroffers among bean counters.
 
 
 
 
 
Bartering fun
September 03, 2015

In this game, you need to be able to barter up on deals with your frienemies. Sometimes, you have to beg them to save you even when it gives them no strategic benefit. Watch you friends beg, plead, wheel and deal and find out who can collect the most coins. I recommend not having extra bean fields, but that is just one strategy.

Are you fun-loving and social? You will love this game!
May 07, 2007

Bohnanza has become a game-night favorite for the people we play games with, but the game is very different depending on the people. I guess that's true for any game, but it can make Bohnanza especially fun or especially lame.

When everyone at the table is willing to make trades and willing to give a little extra in one trade and then adjust later by taking a little more, it really makes the game great. People who are simply unwilling to trade unless the swap is dead even are going to make this game painful.

My wife and I have played this game with four different groups of people. Two of the groups were a blast where everyone was trading and keeping the game moving and still trying to win. Two of the groups were slow and calculated and made for a dull game. What I find interesting is that those players who won't trade unless it is totally even always end up losing because they never get the right cards... they won't pull the trigger on a lot of trades and that is costly. Players who trade freely (and smartly) will win or be in the running at the end.

My wife and I have also played the 2-player version of the game and it is fun, although very different from the regular game. There are definitely more fun 2-player games out there, but Bohnanza is good enough for a change of pace for two.

If you read most reviews and ratings for this game, they are very good and that is not a coincidence. This game is very fun and interesting. It does require players who are willing to trade though... it just doesn't work that well with people who need every trade to be dead even. Enjoy!
