Product Description

Self-contained, 2-player variation on one of our most popular German games of all time, Bohnanza. The popular bean market has been discovered by the Mafia. They want a piece of everything the players sell. As it is impossible to negotiate with them, you have to rely on your cunning and speed. Al Cabohne and Don Corlebohne control a single bean field each, and if you happen to collect the same type of beans you'd better sell fast before the Mafia comes to collect "Protection Beans". The game can be played with two players, or with just one: "alone against the Mob".

4-star solitaire, 3-star 2-player games in 1 box
March 30, 2001

Solitaire is mechanical by its very nature. The player is trying to beat a system, and must make choices that have the best chance of beating that system. Sometimes the choices are obvious, sometimes not.

Al Cabohne excels as a solitaire game. The player faces tough choices at almost every turn, and good choices will usually result in a win. For this reason, I think it is worthy of 4 stars.

As a 2 player game, it suffers by comparison to the myriad games that have hit the market in this category. It is definitely not on a par with Lost Cities, Hera & Zeus, or Caesar & Cleopatra. While it maintains many of the finer points of its illustrious ancestor, Bohnanza, it does not offer the same range of possibility and strategy that these other games present. The rules are a bit muddy on several points, and I am not entirely satisfied that the translator is correct on all rules. For this reason, I can only give it 3 stars as a 2-player game.

Still, if you want a solitaire game that isn't just more of the same build-up-to-Kings nonsense, definitely give it a try.

 
 
 
 
 
A Challenging solitaire game and fun for 2
November 16, 2000

This is one great solitaire game. I was trounced by the mafia the first few games, but now I am learning how to hold my own. Sure beats Klondike. Rosenberg is a true genius with cards. The 2 player game lacks the trading element but keeps all the other challenging decisions and adds the interaction with the mafia players for lots of fun.

 
 
 
 
 
Not at all Bohnanza
November 14, 2000

Unfortunately this one doesn't have much to do with the brilliant Bohnanza. It claims to be a variant for 1 to 2 players, but the main theme of Bohnanza--trading--is completely eliminated from gameplay.
