Bohnanza is a brilliant little game. It's social. It works well with anywhere from 3 to 7 players. (There are rules for a 2 player variant, but it's so-so.) It works for all ages, and is fun for dedicated gamers and normal folk alike. Simply put, this is one of the best all-around games out there.
The premise is simple: You are a bean farmer, trying to make as much money off of bean growing as possible. You have only two bean fields, and each field can only be planted with a single kind of bean at a time. You have to accumulate a certain number of beans in a field before it is worth anything as a sale. How many beans this is depends on the kind of bean planted - the more of a bean there are in the deck, the less each is worth. Thus, while it's easy to collect coffee beans (with 24 in the deck) you need 4 of them before they're worth even a single gold coin. At the opposite extreme, cocoa beans are worth a gold coin each. (You still have to accumulate two before they can be sold.)
The twist that makes this all fun is that your hand of cards (beans to be planted) always remains in the order that you drew it, and you MUST plant the bean-card at the front of your hand every turn, even if this means wrecking one of the fields you had been trying to build up to a good value. The only way to change your hand is by trading cards with other players. Thus, you have to plan ahead, take some risks, and keep a good name.
I rank this game a 5 for educational value because of what it rewards. No where is it written in the rules of bohnanza that you must play honorably, or treat the other players well. However: after many games, I've seen time and again that the players who most often win are the ones who treat other players fairly and honor their bargains. Keeping a good name is vital.

Everyone I've played this with agrees- This is a fun game! I was more than a little skeptical when I first discovered this game- bean planting?, come'on. But I kept reading one enthusiastic review after another, so I decided to give it a try. Turns out this is an uproariously fun game!

The premise is simple- you're a farmer in the business of growing and selling beans. You start out with only two fields for planting your beans and you can only plant one type of bean per field. You can harvest the beans to sell them whenever you like, even when its not your turn. The more beans of a particular type that you have in your field when you decide to harvest, the more gold you get for that harvest. The goal is to have more gold than your fellow bean planters when the game is through.

And you're asking yourself, "So when does the fun part come in?" Just bare with me.

The element that adds so much excitement and fun to this game are the strict rules regarding placement of beans (cards) in your hand as well as planting those cards. The order of the beans in your hand cannot be changed, and when it's your turn you MUST plant the top bean in your hand. If it's your turn and your top bean doesn't match the beans allready in your fields you'll be in a fix if you were hoping to continue increasing your "crop" before the harvest, because in order to plant that first bean, which you must do, you'll have to harvest one of your fields to make room for it. The solution- you should have traded that bean with someone before it was your turn.

The trading is what causes all the commotion. Don't say I didn't warn you if you find yourself in the midst of a bean trading war at your dinner table, complete with embargoes against certain players and other players creating bean cartels.

My wife and I love this game. It is about the only game we play any more because it is quick, easy and enjoyable. More importantly it expands to play with up to seven players. So if we have company we can play it as well. So far we have introduced several other people to the game who have gone and out bought it right away. Definitely recommend it to any game lovers.

In Bohnanza, which you should play with 3 or more, you have a handful of cards that you have to keep in order, and you have to plant the first card (and your second, if you want) in one of your two bean fields in front of you. Bean fields can only have one type of bean and there are a wide variety of beans in the game. The goal is to collect a bunch of a couple varieties of beans, as the more you collect, the more money you get when you harvest and sell them. You always start your hand by planting one or two bean cards, so if you're about to start your turn and you're holding a wax bean and your bean field contains a row of blue beans and a row of chili beans, you have to harvest (i.e., get rid of) either the blue beans or the chili beans.

If you have 3 blue beans in that row and you need at least 4 to collect a dollar, and you only have 1 bean in the chili beans row, then the rules state that you have to harvest the row that has two or more cards. That'd be the blue beans. With 3 blue beans on the table and you need 4 to collect a dollar, you're going to have to harvest those blue beans and get absolutely NOTHING for them. Nice going!

What should you have done? You should've got rid of that damn wax bean in the last trading round, or the trading round before that!

After planting, you draw two cards face-up and you have the option of keeping those cards (and then planting them immediately), or trading (or just giving away) those cards, and any from your hand, to those willing to take those cards. That's where you needed to get rid of your wax bean! And that's where you should've tried to trade that wax bean for a blue bean, so you would've had 4 blue beans in your blue bean row, and you would've then been able to collect at least a coin come harvest time!
