Despite having bought the expansion ( which allows up to 7 players) to Bohnanza 18 months ago tonight was the first time any of the cards had been used. There are a couple of minor tweaks to the rules when playing with 6. Firstly a 3rd field only costs 2 gold, the players have different size starting hands (3,4,5,6,6,6) and players draw 4 cards at the end of their turn.
Play started slowly as we were aqll jostling for position to setup our fields as we wanted. But once the game got going there was plenty of trading going on, with Oggie regularly having to skip his planting phase due to having traded all the cards from his hand away. The game was played very courteosly with gifts often repaid with gifts or trades later in the game. As is usual in our group once it bacame obvious that the game was nearly over every turn became a trading frenzy for the active player, desperately trying to trade away those useless cards in his hand for anything useful. Tel claimed the win, now some would say this was because he had both the first and last turns, but I of course believe it was down to other factors.
A good humoured fun game where it is often to your advantage to gift a bean away which is useful to an opponent.
