This is what we affectionately call, "The Bean Game." It is much more fun than saying "Bohnanza." It was given to us when as a house warming gift when we moved into our home in BR. It is played with a deck of cards with comical illustrations of eight different types of beans (of varying scarcities), which the players are trying to plant and sell in order to raise money.[1] The principal restriction is that players may only be farming two or three types of bean at once, but they obtain beans of all different types randomly from the deck, and so must engage in trading with the other players to be successful. The original game is for three to six players and takes about one hour to play.

I got this explanation from Wikipedia. Love it. Saves time. Anyways like most other games, you have to play it to find out how much fun it really is. (It can be purchased online at Our family highly recommends this game if you are looking for a great time. WARNING: you might become an overly competitive person while playing this game!
