Had a great time this evening. Amongst other things we had a go at Bohnanza. This is a card based training game that is a bit like a cross between Happy Families and Pit. You collect and plant sets of bean seeds in fields in an attempt to harvest them and get the most gold coins. It has a lot of trading and negotiation, which was the bit I enjoyed the most. We got so engrossed in playing that we nearly forgot to celebrate the New Year itself.
The card game was a gift from the folks at Black Marble, who have an eye for a good game it seems. Thanks folks.
I’d like to wish all my readers (gosh, this sounds like I have readers) a very happy new year and all the best for 2010 (which doesn’t sound like a year to me – more like an eye test result….)
